So, i finally managed to refine and deliver the Raptor.
NOTE :- while it has a VTOL lift engine, game dynamics will not allow a craft of this weight or size to do VTOL to orbit from Kerbin.
You CAN use the aerospike engine for assisted short takeoffs and landings, and to visit the smaller moons etc.
It is an SSTO, so wil achieve orbit and return to KSC.
It has pretty much every science option you can expect, seats 6 as expected, and also has a grapple, and three external docking ports.
Action groups are as follows.
Toggle Rapiers between open and closed cycle
Toggle Twitch engines
Toggle Rapiers on and off
Toggle Aerospike on and off
Toggle SAR lights on side of ship
Toggle nose lights
Toggle internal cargo bay lights.
To reach orbit, reach at least 11km, drop the nose and engage the twitch engines once past 300m/sec
Accellerate to past 410m/sec and turn off the twitch engines. From there orbit should be easy.

Do you really want to downvote this?
Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
It will cost you 5 of your own points to downvote
