FASA, BDB (Bluedog Design Bureau), KSPI, and SpaceY parts.
My slightly modified Mercury-Atlas configuration for doing rescue contracts (i.e. space thralls) in RSS.
The payload stage has about 2100 dv for inclination changes, which from Kourou requires only ~700 dv.
The payout is about 3x the cost, so this is a money maker, plus free kerbals.

Planning a science probe to the Moon. Maybe I can get one of these contracts while I'm there.
Orbiting T+ 0:00:14:28
I'm using the sunflare.dll from GPP
Orbiting T+ 0:00:22:18
Ok, ~4k delta v to get to the moon and match a contract orbit. It may need some tweaks once I get there. (I have ~4600 left.)

The science payload (mostly BDB parts)
Flying T+ 0:10:09:02
Even broken, scatterer looks amazing in RSS. (notice the second horizon - wierd.)
Orbiting T+ 6:08:06:39
The moon needs a scansat, before I crash another probe into a mountain top.
Suborbital T+ 0:00:03:50
Night launch of a rescue mission. More space thralls!
Landed T+ 8:01:07:52
Ugh. First landing on the Moon and I tip it over. Of course.
Flying T+ 0:00:24:44
Hover science even works on water
Flying T+ 0:00:55:52
Whew, finally back on land!
Flying T+ 0:00:11:41
Don't worry, Jeb is used to these kinds of landings.
Landed T+ 0:00:19:27
Hah, we told Jeb we forget to pack the chutes! But we landed just fine with the two top chutes.
Flying T+ 0:00:24:46
More hover science! Need one of these that works on the moon next.
Flying T+ 0:00:02:38
Heh, my hover probe is now a cruise missile - for science
Flying T+ 12:03:47:54
Returning science from the Moon. Apparently one or more experiments is too high and getting hot.
Suborbital T+ 0:00:04:22
Sending this lander to the Moon, and hopefully the science will make it back to orbit.
Orbiting T+ 0:00:09:19
Oooh 'Extreme Texture Overhaul' for RSS has working auroras - that undulate!
Suborbital T+ 13:21:07:56
My science landers are getting taller
Landed T+ 13:21:18:03
Success! With enough telemetry and quick handling we can land and still have enough dv to bring the science back to the station.
Hyperbolic T+ 4:22:03:46
The Moon's textures using E.T.O. are really nice.
Landed T+ 6:01:55:44
Hah, landed the rover, within reasonable distance, and 52 m/s fuel to spare.
Orbiting T+ 0:00:00:40
Bonnie doesn't want to go home yet
Somewhat rag-tag looking, but should be able to get to Jupiter and collect science.
Orbiting T+ 0:00:12:05
Ok, that was a terrible ascent, but still managed to get there with 8k delta V left. Time to go to Jupiter.
Flying T+ 0:00:00:24
Now taking tourists to the Moon.
Landed T+ 21:00:00:51
Not the best rover landing, but the solar panels survived.
Landed T+ 21:00:04:28
Ready for sciencing the Moon.
Hyperbolic T+ 615:17:53:53
Landed T+ 657:22:49:02
Third try better, only minor solar panel damage (reserves still ok). And of course, I tipped it over.
Orbiting T+ 1:02:17:45
Plotting a trip to Saturn
