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.

Fixed geometry Lancer. Lighter, sturdier, best performance, ...  ;) :)

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

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

Interesting - I don't recall seeing the B-1A's escape capsule portrayed too often:

There was a proposal for a bomber version of a stretched F-22.
Would F-22 or F-23 wings look good on the Bone?

Steve Trimble @TheDEWLine

Quick summary: Boeing is working on a new 22,000lb-rated pylon for B-52 that may allow up to 3 ARRWs on each hardpoint. The image below shows the B-1 with six ARRWs on the belly. Boeing also has shown a new rotary launch for up to eight HAWCs, although depends on final design.
