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."
 
Nope. Energiya Kliper
 
Nope. McDonnell-Douglas ASSET.

I think that is an amalgamation of different designs

I think LockMart wanted a lunar capable spaceplane under CEV:


If I am not mistaken, this was part of the larger SLI

SLS costs for EELV payloads

No, it was OSP and just for LEO
No, It was after SLI
No, Nothing can approach SLS costs without actually trying. SLS is worse than F-35 when it comes to costs.
