I was inspired by a 1/144 scale B-1 Bomber next to some 1/72 scale fighters -- would be interesting to see a  "medium" bomber based on the B-1 design, similar in class to the F-111, perhaps a competitor back in the 60's. 

In this case, same layout as a B-1 but with two engines instead of four, and because of the layout you get a 2nd internal bay (versus the F-111's single bay).

Great idea!  Maybe try for two larger engines to replace the original four units.  Something from the F-35 perhaps?

Something like the FB-11H proposal, perhaps
