I originally built a plane that resembled an Antonov 225 and then I reallied it was about the size required to transport a shuttle so I turned the plane into my own adaptation of a 747 with an open back. it’s definitely not a 1:1 plane but i tried to make it look right while also remaining useful. If you can fit it in the back you can haul up to 900ish tons inside the plane though I wouldn’t recommend it. I tried 1000t but the plane shattered about 30s after liftoff lol.

I attempted an approach and landing test but you really need two people for that otherwise you crash into the 747’s vertical stabilizer. Due to KSP’s physics, the tail cone causes lots of drag but I decided to add it anyway since thats what the real shuttle had. The tail cone is attached to a docking port between the SSME’s if you want to remove it. I think the tail cone looks cool and it was a pain in the but to get the shape correct so I leave it on. but do what you wish. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
