Looks cool, but I hate to think of the burden this would put on stressed-out cabin personnel, always rushing to calm down frightened passengers yelling "THE WINGS ARE COMING OFF!" every time they're altering wing sweep.  ;D

Why not combine Air Dom and Pathfinder into one load-out? You've got plenty of space and tonnage... just the thing to carve a big enough hole for the B-52 force to get through en masse.

Then there's the matter of popping those pesky subs and ICBMs, especially those nasty road/rail-mobile buggers, before anybody has a chance to push their local Little Red Button... mobile command posts, whether surface or air, the pathfinder Bones oughtta be able to tackle.

Random thought:  scale-o-rama 1/72 B-1B into 1/48 platform. Maybe give it a two man crew in tandem arrangement (F-14 or F-15B/D/E or similar cockpit?) plus two engines rather than four.  Should result in a platform that would be slightly larger than a F-111.  Maybe do as either a competitor to or replacement for the F-111?

Wasn't there something similar to this in some of the Dale Brown novels?

^ In terms of armament, yes. Not so sure about the airframe mods, though. Last Brown novel I read was Battle Born. Musta been about 10 years or so ago. Don't remember whether the "Überfortress" (don't remember the actual name) had a butterfly tail.

Love the scale-o-rama idea. Maybe couple it with ysi-maniac's fixed wing idea.  :)
With a fixed wing, I wonder about putting the engines into the wing roots, H.P. Victor-style....

The V-tail certainly sets it apart from the regular B-Ones. 

That is one impressive weapons load too.

Comparing various kits, found B-36 wings are decent match to B-1 fuselage.  Plastic surgery is necessary but looks doable.
Ruff concept picture is attached.
