Seems to be a genuine factory model, but it something different from a winged body design I have seen (last two pics).

Thanks for the pics. I've only seen one pic of the winged LM OSP before. What made them abandon wings in favor of the cone? For that matter, did LM ever consider an X-33 style lifting body for OSP (or even before OSP, in the days of SLI)?

It says "Made In Phillipines" on the base. Seems like a higher quality than some though.

...The front end of ARK II, maybe? Although that one got chopped up for "Jason of Star Command" and "Space Academy, featuring none other than Dr. Smith."
