For all ya small payloads!

This is a smaller version of my Space Shuttle without the main engines (Buran-Style) and launched on top of a usual rocket like Dreamchaser or Space Rider.

There was a plan for an orbiter called Hermes by CNES and later ESA, launched on top of Ariane 5 which is probably the non-kerball(iz)ed real world counterpart to it.

I’ve built it for Shuttle Challenge V5 Mun-STS 1 (see album below), that’s why you’ll find a small outpost in the cargobay.

Flying this craft is straightforward, do your usual thing… For landing you’ll need some speed, that’s why I suggest you dive towards the ground on final approach
