Came with a bunch of other info, such as a photo of a display model of the WS-118P... which I'd never heard of before, along with BoMi and VTOL fighter and jetliner info which I had heard of before. Always possible it's fraudulent, but it certainly appears wind-tunnel-modelly enough. *Exactly* what it is, though... dunno.
On 4 January 1955 the USAF issued Systems Requirement SR-12 for the WS-118P high-speed reconnaissance vehicle. Range was to be over 5000 km, altitude over 30 km. Bell provided a proposal on 1 December 1955, calling for a three-phase program using a glider designed to be boosted by a two-stage rocket to Mach 15 at 50 km altitude (Phase I would produce an 8,000 km range vehicle; Phase II a 16,000 km range vehicle; and Phase III an orbital vehijcle).
General Operations Requirement GOR-12 of 12 May 1955 incorporated findings of the SR-12 studies and called for development of a new manned high-altitude platform by the third quarter of 1959.
In September of 1955 Bell received a funded contract extending its BOMI work under WS-118P. This was superseded in March 1956 by WS-459L, Brass Bell. Bell kept using the BOMI name in its studies through the subsequent Brass Bell and Robo studies, until they were all superseded by Dynasoar.

Clearly this info on what the WS-118P would be like conflicts with the picture which is certainly not of a hypersonic design.

In reference to other recent threads and spys and copying, does anyone else notice a similarity between that WS 118P model and the Myasischev Bounder? J

No again. I have no models of this, Blackstar or anything related.
Originally posted by Murcielago.I think he made his model, based on there renderings.
No yet again. But believe as you will.

Murcielago said it. I took a quick look at the link he posted and Orion drags out for 4 pages lies about his model that he claims is Aurora. He constantly lied and refused to answer questions with a straight answer, until the very end.
I personally believe this is another lie he is hoping to get attention from and that we should ignore his claims that accompany this model.
