Got this hot rod finished yesterday. Had a wee bit o' trouble with wind during the painting process, making the red fins come out less than stellar...sooo, I reapplied another coat of primer, and just went with solid white appearance.

I believe there was a thread for this kit not long ago.....I searched, but did'nt see it in "gallery". Anyway, here she is. Along with the mighty LFB they provide you in the package.

My Tomahawk and goony of the tomahawk. The only paint was the metallic pearl white acrylic. The Red and Blue are all solid swatches of decals I made and printed, to guarantee a color match with the rest of the decals.

(I made no cardmodel, like I usually do to complete the set, since I already have the Quest MicroMaxx version of the Tomahawk, as was posted earlier in the thread.)

Welcome to the SCALE (BGM-109) Tomahawk Cruise Missile Gallery on TRF.

This gallery showcases the (BGM-109) Tomahawk Cruise Missile and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


Quest: Tomahawk Cruise Missile (MMX): #5641
Quest: Tomahawk SLCM Cruise Missile: #3007



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



The Tomahawk is a long-range, all-weather, subsonic cruise missile. Introduced by General Dynamics in the 1970s, it was designed as a medium- to long-range, low-altitude missile that could be launched from a surface platform. It has been improved several times and, by way of corporate divestitures and acquisitions, is now made by Raytheon. Some Tomahawks were also manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing Defense, Space & Security)

The Tomahawk missile family consists of a number of subsonic, jet engine-powered missiles for attacking a variety of surface targets. Although a number of launch platforms have been deployed or envisaged, only sea (both surface ship and submarine) launched variants are currently in service. Tomahawk has a modular design, allowing a wide variety of warhead, guidance and range capabilities.

There have been several variants of the BGM-109 Tomahawk employing various types of warheads.

AGM-109H/L Medium Range Air to Surface Missile (MRASM) - a shorter range, turbojet powered ASM with bomblet munitions; never entered service.
BGM-109A Tomahawk Land Attack Missile - Nuclear (TLAM-A) with a W80 nuclear warhead.
BGM-109C Tomahawk Land Attack Missile - Conventional (TLAM-C) with a unitary warhead.
BGM-109D Tomahawk Land Attack Missile - Dispenser (TLAM-D) with submunitions.
BGM-109G Ground Launched Cruise Missile (GLCM)- with a W84 nuclear warhead; withdrawn from service in 1987.
RGM/UGM-109B Tomahawk Anti Ship Missile (TASM) - radar guided anti-shipping variant; withdrawn from service in the 1990s.
RGM/UGM-109E Tomahawk Land Attack Missile (TLAM Block IV) - improved version of the TLAM-C.

Ground Launch Cruise Missiles (GLCM) and their truck-like launch vehicles were employed at bases in Europe; it was withdrawn from service to comply with the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Many of the anti-ship versions were converted into TLAMs at the end of the Cold War. The Block III TLAMs that entered service in 1993 can fly farther and use Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers to strike more precisely. Block IV TLAMs are completely redesigned with an improved turbofan engine. The F107-402 engine provided the new BLK III with a throttle control, allowing in-flight speed changes. This engine also provided better fuel economy. The Block IV TLAMs have enhanced deep-strike capabilities and are equipped with a real-time targeting system for striking fleeting targets.

The US Navy Tomahawk SLCM Cruise Missile is the "weapon of choice" for a wide variety of military operations and is able to be launched from ship or submarine. The Quest Tomahawk Cruise Missile model rocket is an eye-catching reproduction which features a unique boat-tail construction and "air scoop" with flights up to 800 feet. This model rocket is a "must have" for any serious military model enthusiast! (Quest 2013 Web Ad)

Why are the Post Dates out of sequence in this thread ?

2011 posts are preceding 2009 posts, yet a recent 2020 post is where it belongs . . .

Maybe it has to do with the fact that the various galleries are being worked on and consolidated, and may include posts that were from the "old" TRF or before the XenForo update a couple of years ago.

Possibly . . . It makes reading awkward.
