B-1B Bomber 64mm X 2

I have started a build on a new B-1B model. This model has some elements of a profile jet combined with 3-D modeling techniques.

Constructed from 6mm, 3mm Depron, carbon strips, and 3mm balsa.

I hope you enjoy the build. Please keep in mind this is version 1 (Prototype)

very cool. have you decided on a CG location yet? not sure if you've been following B1 Bob's build, but it's worth checking out if you haven't. he's building an 18 footer for turbine, but he's used profile planes to check out his CG with wings extended and swept. I seem to remember the CG not being in the place you think it should be. I'de go to his website and check it out, plus ask him some questions. he's a great guy and he will help you out. good luck and I'm subscribed.

Thanks Rich, will do. However, I don't see many updates involving the profile version. Got links?

yeah, he's a funny guy in general. even his dad begins his SR-71 vids with "hello everybody". hahahahahaha.

I'm not sure if there's been any updates with the B-1 as of late. he's been busy with an F-105 that looks every bit as spectacular. the website (for those who don't know) is www.b1modelproject.com
