I work in transportation human factors engineering and research for land, sea, and air. My work in usability/UX includes user interface design, design guide development, empirical testing, and expert evaluation. My human factors research focuses on automation, displays, and security and safety processes. I've advanced degrees in engineering and psychology and been working in the field since 1995. My contributions to this site are my personal opinion and do not represent the policies or position of my employer or any of its associated agencies. Not that anyone was wondering.

Bummer. Do these languages have a tradition of abbreviations?

@user1796650: Also, if users can figure it out on their own, see if there is a way to combine the drop-down functionality (alphabetical list of models?) with the logic view all on the first page the user sees, thereby eliminating both the initial Options page and the browse button. This is especially attractive if users usually need the logic view or if the logic view is useful even when using the drop down (e.g., it helps verify the selection).

@user1796650: I’d guess if your users likely can’t figure out on their own whether to use the drop down or the logic view, then have the initial page to help them with that. If the users can easily figure it out from a single page with the drop down and the browse button, then try that. User research will provide the answer.

I've re-written my answer to take into account the mockups. My specific recommendation for you is, "if the user selects Option 1, then the second page of the wizard presents the Model drop down. If the user selects Option 2, then the second page presents the Logical View," but I've added more general advice too.
