NOW we're talking, a lot more room for a party-bus setup and penthouse. An orbiting casino too.
Honestly I'd want an XR-3 or XR-4 rather than an XR-5 MK2, seriously, any plans to fill in the gaps, ever?
This would be how I feel on that myself. The XR-5 is cool in terms of a concept, this huge big space plane that can carry parts for an entire space station into orbit in just one go, but it is just too big. A bit too much suspension of disbelief I get. It is fun to fly certainly, this big flying building with wings, and a challenge to get into orbit and back home again for sure.
An XR-3 (or 4) in which the craft was a bit bigger with an emphasis on a payload bay about as functional as the Space Shuttle, where I could use it build a space station one node at a time would be an Orbiter wet dream. :bananadance:
