Am I the only one that sees potential problems from the lack of a wheel in the front? I am also slightly disappointed with how similar it is to the old retired shuttles.

To be honest, I don't believe we`re in an era where private money has the will to go to space. I think that, for the time being is the realm of governments and multi-national government organisations.
I agree. As yet, space flight isn`t easy enough to be cheap enough to be profitable. Satellite launches are the only commercial area.

@codejockey: I think it is full scale, since on the site they mention atlas V as a launch platform and that is not exactly the biggest platform. @draculya: another possibility may be that for cargo they will use a fully radio controlled version that flies without on-board crew, altough I think that a disposable cargo carrier may be the better option.
