A closer look at the new Deepstar model in Orbiter 2016:

Note the inset RCS - this was a request from the development thread 8 years ago. I got completely stuck trying to implement it and gave up.

Last year I thought, 'hey, why not just rebuild the whole model?'

Here's one of the VAB/LCC east side showing the nice golden glow of sunrise as seen from the LC 39 Press Site.

Oh! I'm very interested. What is this based on?
The Station is a McDonnell Douglas study from 1970. It would launch on a Saturn INT-21 then telescope out. It would be spun around its centre of gravity for rotational gravity up to 0.7g - although this was planned only as an initial experiment and it would spend most of its life as a zero-G station.

There's a nice write up of the initial presentation by McDonnell Douglas here:
https://www.wired.com/2012/06/mcdonnell-douglas-phase-b-12-man-space-station-1970/

The original presentation and other documents concerning the station are on NTRS. The abundance of descriptions and diagrams and artists impressions make it a great candidate for an Orbiter add-on.

The spaceplane is even more exotic - I'll post more about it at some point (there's a screenshot on the previous page). :)
