Academy Model Kits is adding to their 1/144th scale bomber fleet with the addition of a Rockwell B-1B Lancer.  Academy's previous foray in 1/144th scale aircraft kits was with a B-47 kit.  This B-1B is the sixth, depending on how you count them,  1/144th scale B-1. Lindberg, Minicraft, Panda/Dragon, Monogram, and Revell have all had offerings of this aircraft in this scale.
