You have to take into account that a significant part of a ship's (or sat's) cost is its Industrial Output cost - which you therefore lose during the turns it's being built.
Could there be an additional line added to the Design & Build screens showing the total cost? (Maybe with a tooltip showing the maintenance cost?)
