THIS
THAT
and the OTHER THING

This is great.

I'm not a "Joe vehicle" kind of guy. I just don't really care for the Joes and the aesthetics of the way the Joe vehicles are designed. I've always like the Cobra designs more because... well... they just LOOK more badass. I'm a sucker for all black designs. Probably why the HISS v1 is still my overall favorite design (and why the Night Raven is a close 2nd).

This custom makes me want to re-treat the Tomahawk design and see what I could do to re-purpose it for the snakes.

Finding room for this beast in my display is my only minor issue I've got at the moment...

KILLER work again and it looks super nice next to the Con Night Boomer.
46 Zone:
Thanks everyone. If I can get my hands on some more lifeline backboards, maybe an air ambulance will be next. It might be awhile as those are hard to find.
steve2477:

Mr Hebime:
Looks great! Did you disassemble it to paint, and how difficult was it?
WarinThefloor:
exactly what I came here to ask.
And great jobs dude its awesome.
truejoefan:
Love this! Working on one myself! Great job. I am debating about using the dying method for the missiles or paint and I was wondering did you paint the as well? They look really good. Any advice?

This should be a front page custom!
46 Zone:
It was real easy to take apart and put back together. It was easy to add length to the wench rope too. I started a thread about this and here it is below:

http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...sassembly.html

I first hand painted the missiles and engine parts with testors enamel orange but ended up spraying them with testors enamel orange. If I could do it again, I would use a flat orange, but I couldn't find it. Even at the expensive hobbytown USA, expensive Michaels, and cheap hobby lobby. I couldn't take out the front intakes, so I used frog tape, and taped up the outer housing to paint them. That was probably the hardest part.

I used testors flat black enamel for the rest. Again, I frog taped the front engine intakes, and the front bubble paint app, even though its hard to see in the pics.
WarinThefloor:
Thank you dude, I want to make a 1982 Hasta green one and have been working out the details of how to do it since I goit my 'Hawk a couple of days ago, was thinkin I would have to mask off the lower canopy "glass" and the forward engine intakes and you have confirmed what has to be done. Thanks again for paving the way to MANY Tomohawk customs to come!!

Also really glad to know that all of the dark parts in the interior are removable because that was gonna be a bear to mask otherwise.

Unrelated question but does anyone know what colors the camo patern from the factory are? It kinda bothers me that there is no dark brown camo on the hardpoints, Vert' stabilators. engine canards and front intake so I was considering adding a paint ap to correct that...the dark brown almost looks like a ash grey?
Jacklefttown:
That is a G.D. thing'a beauty, son!! AMAZIZING!!
Tim 121RVC:
Win.
takedown:
Wow, wish my armed forces senate committee would authorize for 2 of these.

rip_cord:
Bad ass. That looks awesome!

Congrats on the FP.
Stygian:
Very, very awesome! Looks like a legit assembly line toy.
iambob13:
I'd love to add Night Force and Tiger Force Tomahawks to my JOE air units. Yours looks really good.
Siouxer Viper:
That looks really good.
GILTYONE:
Sweet!!
maradona:
Well done, sir.
Dragasses:
it was only a matter of time before this got fp'd, mr. 46.

congrats. well deserved.
Ixz72:
I have a suggestion. Take the refueling probe/ missile from the Ghosthawk II and attach it to this. So it becomes a PAVE Tomahawk!!!
firefox91:
I like the work, I really do. But somehow the Tomahawk doesn't seem to fit with the Night Force color pattern as good as I thought it would.
Superjoe74:
Very cool. Clean paint apps too.
rfarrell22:
This is so awesome!!!
Is that a dark green? I'm assuming it's NF Black, but it almost looks green in the light>
I approve either way!!!
