Dr. Jet's ChopShop is an eclectic collection of special parts for Kerbal Space Program.

Parts are mostly self-explaining - either in Imgur album or in game.

GrunfWorks reviews ChopShop

Parts are describes correctly here, which I think is very nice.

Though... LTS-1 side tanks were abused again... :(

 They were specially designed to provide asparagus fueling capability to LTS-1 system and not as rover attachments.

Kottabos reviews ChopShop

It's 0.6.4 version thus some nasty bugs are seen. :blush:

Blister decouplers are for boosters, not for engines.

Also don't follow Kottabos style of attaching LTS Mk1.

Side tanks must be strapped on Core tank side nodes. Strictly in couples. That's it. :P

Whilst I agree CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. Please don't ask me about it but refer to the CKAN mod thread if you are having issues with CKAN or the metadata it maintains. Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.
