  I have a pair that belongs to my woody. I think they are 12" wide by 60" long. I would think they are the same for the metal bomber.  Only difference I can see is how they mount. Do you have an old one to copy from ??? . If you look around this site you should find lots of pics of them on the machines....

   BOUC, if you look at this video it will show how he made the ski made for the woody. I think the bottom is the same but they have different brackets to mount them with. You should have that already on yours.

    It starts at the 1:40 minute mark.. I hope this helps you...
