Actually it looks pretty cool.

Cool station mate. Nice job.

Not bad. Also, that fuel silo looks like a wine bottle.

It's a pretty good start. Is this your first major station?
What altitude did you put it at. I usually use 200 or 250 km in kerbin orbit leaving lots of room for ships from the surface to maintain a lower orbit during rendezvous. It's more fuel effecient.

You've got lots of habitat space, but you might want to add a science lab to reset experiment bays. Who ever heard of a space station without a lab? lol

I see lots of solar panels, but do you have a decent battery supply to keep you running while you're on the dark side of the planet?

But you've left lots of room to expand opposite the fuel tank so you can add stuff as you need it.

It must have been challenging getting that probe docked next to your fuel tank. Those ports look pretty close together in the image.

Anyways, good luck with the rest of your build.

Absolutely terrible.

It needs more boosters.

Just kidding, it looks great!

But still, More boosters.

Looks okay. Your cloud mod looks awesome; I really need to put some cash aside for a real gaming desktop.

That little piece near the fuel tank with all the RCS thrusters, is that a tug of some kind?

I always hate it when I forget the Engineer chip on my ships or stations! :D

I wonder if it would be cool to put a station up in orbit and leave some tiny, sideways thrusters on the side and put it on a SMALL spin, docking would be hard/impossible, but it would look cool as heck.

I've done rotating stations. You can dock with them pretty easy if your docking port in in the hub where you only need to deal with spin rather than lateral movement. The problem is that every time you use time warp everything goes on rails and stops spinning.

The inflatable habitat pack has a spinning centrifuge module that doesn't stop with time warp.

Of course you can't attach anything to the moving parts so you can't make a kerbalpult.

How many launhes did that take? I'm guessing 3-4...
It's a well-made station, far better than anything I've been able to put into orbit.
