And the reason for that is after I buy the kit, I too will be living in the garage along with my stash.

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

I'm glad to see some CAD for the B-2, there will be a lot of excited builders out there. Looks good!

It's been over a quarter-century since I worked on the B-2, but I can already see errors from those pictures.  Mind you, you would have to be intimately familiar with the aircraft to spot them, but I can claim that (especially the #1 aircraft which I am very intimately familiar with).  OTOH, none of them are particularly visible, so no harm, no foul.

Might not production aircraft be different to the prototype?

Not in the areas I know about, I've seen aircraft #2-4 also and they all were the same.

Wonder if World of Tanks will be offering those things as DLC? :)

To model company:  How about a US Army '46 counterpart to these huge German tanks ?
Figure shipped as a bare hull "kit" due to weight for final assembly in Europe or wherever.
Early cold war monster tank a counter part to SAC getting big bombers and USN getting Midway and Forrestal class carriers.  ;)
