Nice. Is this from plans or custom everything? And are you gonna have swing wings, and what's your wingspan and length?

Custom plans made in CAD. It will have swing wing, and it is pretty large, the plans stretched 3/4 the way across his floor when he showed them to me a few weeks ago. I'm not sure about the precise specs though.

Yes, correct. However, the plans are not finalized and Silent has yet to put his 2 cents into his version. (Which I'm sure will SMOKE mine..damn guy can build anything in his sleep!)

WoW great questions:

Yes it's custom
Swing wings are planned.
Length is about: 66 inches +- 2
WS: about 47 inches +- 2
(I say "about" because it is drafted from the real B-1B)
