Hoping to fly it this week at thunderstruck going up on 3 76mm - had to up the Ns equivalent of an "O" :>

Yes, I reworked the recovery a bit - trying to make it less likely the nosecone will come of before I want it to.

One suggestion,,, don't wire the charges up to the wrong channel,,, that will deploy the wrong chute EVERY time

Positively tiny next to that behemoth! :y: ^

This is the Quest SLAM AGM-84 Harpoon kit. It is based on a 40mm body tube, measuring a little under two feet tall (520mm/20.5"), with a single 12" parachute for recovery.

Maiden flight last night on a B6-4 was straight up and uneventful on the way down.

Awesome Details Alex! When can I see it fly? Will you be at LDRS XXXI?

I had to have a Harpoon after I saw the one fly at Red Glare IX. This is my 6" AGM-84E SLAM.

Flew the Harpoon at Midwest Power X yesterday.

Great flight, and it landed right next to the road.

Here's a quick video

Wow! Are all of the details decals? That would be a lot of vinyl.

That's just incredible. :drool:
But, full-size missiles are so much more fun if you carry them fully assembled on top of your car. :wink: :grin:

Welcome to the SCALE (AGM-84) Harpoon Gallery on TRF.

This gallery showcases the (AGM-84) Harpoon Missile and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


Quest: Harpoon AGM: #3008
TLP: Harpoon AGM-84A: K012



as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!



The Harpoon is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile system, developed and manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing Defense, Space & Security). In 2004, Boeing delivered the 7,000th Harpoon unit since the weapon's introduction in 1977. The missile system has also been further developed into a land-strike weapon, the Standoff Land Attack Missile (SLAM).

The regular Harpoon uses active radar homing, and a low-level, sea-skimming cruise trajectory to improve survivability and lethality. The missile's launch platforms include:

Fixed-wing aircraft (the AGM-84, without the solid-fuel rocket booster)
Surface ships (the RGM-84, fitted with a solid-fuel rocket booster that detaches when expended, to allow the missile's main turbojet to maintain flight)
Submarines (the UGM-84, fitted with a solid-fuel rocket booster and encapsulated in a container to enable submerged launch through a torpedo tube);
Coastal defense batteries, from which it would be fired with a solid-fuel rocket booster.

TLP Harpoon AGM-84A(K012) Basic Information.

The Launch Pad (TLP)

MODEL NAME: Harpoon AGM-84A Also known as:

NUMBER: K012

Introduced:

Designer:

Type: Scale
Motor Mount: 1x24mm
Recovery: Parachute
Stages: 1

Mfg. Description: HARPOON AGM-84A AIR-LAUNCHED ANTI-SHIP MISSILE (USA)

Here's a kit that has been one of our most popular models since 1996! This is the air launched version of the Harpoon, used by the U.S. Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Although the surface-launched and submarine launched versions (both with booster stages) have been widely exported, no foreign sales have been announced for the AGM-84A. It is a sea-skimmer, coming in low to avoid radar detection, and at the last moment performs a sudden pop-up and dive onto the target ship. This final maneuver is intended to defeat automatic rapid-fire defense systems. Range is approximately 58 miles, powered by a small Teledyne turbojet engine. Length of the actual missile is 12ft., 7in., and it weighs 1,160 lbs. at launch. Five hundred lbs. of this weight is the high explosive warhead.

Just take a look at the illustration at left to see the fine detailing possible with your Launch Pad Harpoon AGM-84A kit! This rocket stands almost 30 inches tall, and is now powered by your choice of either a "D", "E", or "F" 24mm motor. As with all of our kits, it may be launched from any standard launcher equipped with a 3/16" diameter launch rod. This kit is a great introduction to Mid-Power rocketry! Try it! (TLP 2013 Web Ad)

I was hoping someone would come back out with a 5.5" diameter kit like the one that was sold by Hanger 11 company. I wonder who made the nose one for them?

So who would be the company that could come out with a 5.5 inch or 6 inch fiberglas Harpoon kit to fill the void?
PML did a 11.4" batch for a movie years ago and they still sell the nosecone for it.
