So after the end of the space shuttle program, NASA needed a replacement. This was one of them: https://www.spacepropulsion.org/uploads/2/5/3/9/25392309/space_shuttle-2_-_dgt07jan2019.pdf
I'm not gonna go into too much detail about it, but here's the challenge: Make a working replica of the thing in the pic with no cheat, no .bp editing and extra points for only using free parts (no DLC part). It must also be able to reach orbit and deploy satellites.

The ET alone is 12m… You’d have to do pad assembly… and the aerospikes… The fairing’s gotta be at least 6m…

This was a nice challenge. The Hardest part was to keep on doing fuel transfer on both the tanks consecutively and equally, thus I don't recommend any beginners to play with it.
This is just an amateur build, cause I didn't even looked what were the original dimensions that were decided, here the shuttles are working like recoverable landing boosters:D. Also no.bp editing made it more simple, here is my build:

Makes something the spitting image of the given picture.
Very nice!
