I want to make a 3D model of a B-2 Spirit bomber. However I'd like to know the excact dimensions of it so that I can make it at least somewhat accurate. I'd like to know the lenghts of the following red lines(each straight line separately): B-2 with requested dimensions

    $\begingroup$ I doubt you will find an official source for these. I'd look for a B-2 on google maps/Earth and use the distance measuring tool. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Did you even consider what I suggested? I found a B-2 on google maps in less than 5 seconds google search $\endgroup$

I doubt you will find an official source for these. Luckily, we have google maps.

Using this example from Whiteman AFB (https://www.google.com/maps/@38.7250446,-93.5602627,145m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en) and distance measuring tool we get the following lengths:

enter image description here

1 - ~4.65 m (~15.24 ft)

2 - ~3.69 m (~12.10 ft)

3 - ~7.83 m (~25.69 ft)

4 - ~10.71 m (~35.13 ft)

5 - ~4.58 m (~15.04 ft)

6 - ~31.52 m (~103.40 ft)

The rest you can get from the published dimensions (height, length, wingspan), as an example.

  • $\begingroup$ Just like in the story about the B-2s unveiling, where some journalists (allegedly) overflew the site to get pictures of the planform and tail, which the military was not keen to show. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 26, 2019 at 12:54
  • $\begingroup$ What's the other aircraft next to the bomber? A T-38 Talon? There are two more on the other side of the hangers as well. $\endgroup$
