Oh, How It Pains Me To Do This: Kerbal's Starscream Mod

Such heroic nonsense

I know, I know - 'pop cultural thing painstakingly recreated in sandbox indie game' is so 2010. But I have a great weakness despite my built-up resistance to covering Del Boy's Robin Reliant in Minecraft or a Terraria screenshot that looks like Michael Bolton's hair. Monkey see Transformers, monkey post about Transformers. In this case, it's duplicitous Decepticon seeker Starscream- or, at least, a robot that can transform into a jet and which is openly inspired by him - recreated in Kerbal Space Program. This is not bad comedy: it actually transforms! It actually flies! Er, briefly.

Sadly it lacks Starscream's traditional white, red and blue colouring. And also hands. In fact it looks more like Machine Wars Thundercracker than any version of Starscream, but I'm trying to fight my nerd-rage here cos... snurk no no noaaaaargh WHY DID THEY GIVE GRIMLOCK HORNS IN THE TRANSFORMERS 4 TRAILER NNNNG aaargh breathebreathebreathe. Breathe. Cos the point is it's an actual, transforming transformer, and just look at it:

Sadly it's apparently about as aerodynamic as a teachest and crashes to the ground a few seconds after take-off, but like the appearance that's not really the point, is it? More of this sort of thing, please. By which I mean we need Astrotrain, as a fully-functioning triple-changer.
