ar81 has some useful tutorials. This first one is for spacecraft, not spacecraft3, but the principoles are the same. You just need to read the sc3 instructions to see the deltas.

This is ar81's "advanced concepts" tutorial. I haven't messed with this one myself, yet.

sc3 is super easy to use. Building the mesh is more difficult, and labeling all the mesh components for thrusters and animations is more tedious still, but MeshWizard helps with that.

I'm working on something very much like this at the moment. I do however have a lengthy "honey-do" list from the wife in front of it at the moment.
It'll be a Spacecraft3 and a Multistage tutorial.
I assume you already have a basic ship mesh of some kind?
edit--
Andy44 beat me to the punch regarding AR81's tutorials, his stuff is really good. Highly recommend taking a look at them.
