Rockwell B-1B Lancer   8.75"   8.25"

The nose art figure of Mr. Bones is a cartoon of the venerable emblem of the 128th Squadron, showing the smoking cat only as a skeleton, as an allusion to the popular nick name of "bone" ("B-one") for the B-1B. "Mr. Bones" made the Georgia Air National Guard's last fl ight with the Lancer. The supersonic B-1B is one of the main pillars of the long-range bomber fleet of the USAF. One of its most visible special features are the variable-geometry wings, helping the aircraft achieve the optimal fl ying condition at different altitudes and velocities. This "swing-wing"-feature has also been incorporated into the 1/200 scale model, next to the addition of the crew entry staircase as an exchangeable part.

Rockwell B-1B Lancer

Designed as a replacement for the B-52 Stratofortress, the B-1 Lancer was first flown on December 23, 1974 but did not enter service until 1986. First envisioned in the 1960s, this aircraft took two decades to begin its career. Its development was halted and restarted numerous times, and it was alternately praised for its potential and decried as gross misuse of taxpayer money. Today, the B-1 operates as a long-range, supersonic low-level penetrator. Its speed and survivability are superior to the B-52, and its high-speed strike and large payload capabilities give it a unique role in modern strategic bombing operations.
