Would open up front and rear of engines to become jets.

Paging back, both the ysi-manic configurations are sweet  :)
And both could built in styrene.

A long, long time ago, I played with the notion of a direct scaled-down version of the B-1B as an F-111 replacement.
It used two instead of four F101 turbofans, crew of two, two weapons bays (instead of three). I'll attempt to find my paperwork (yes, it was so long ago, that it was pre PC days for me!  :o)

From memory it was just a smidgen larger and heavier than the F-111, but in essence, I think such a design would have been very effective in terms of cost, performance and capability! In essence it was a straight out mini-B-1B!

That's fantastic!  8)
Ysi, how about swapping the 1/144 B-1 cockpit for a 1/72 F-4 Phantom cockpit?
Got something similar planned with a 1/144 B-1 and a 1/72 F-15, but the Phantom wings look too damn cool. I thought about podded engines as on the Concorde. I think they even had quite similar proposals for what would eventually be the F-14 and F-15.
Cheers,
Moritz

Very nice!  Though I'd expect an option with a scaled F-15 wing, too.

U.S. Patent 9,963,231 B2 was awarded on May 8th to Boeing. It depicts a number of cannon configurations that can be stowed in a B-1B's weapons bays and extended down outside of those bays for use.

(Yes I checked the the date. It's not April 1st)

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Can the system be mounted on any weapons bay able to accept a CSRL? Because then this opens the door for B-52 and B-2 gunships too... >:D
