Tomahawk Cruise Missile
Sculpture - Wood Sculpture
I did this work because the technology is amazing. These babies are launched from submarines below the surface and the wings, fins, and air intake fold out after entering the atmosphere. Then the turbofan takes over and there she goes off to protect us. This version is based on the General Dynamics Tomahawk.
It is a very accurate 1/12 scale done in eastern red cedar hand polished with a finishing wax. I never use polyurethanes. The brass rod was hand bent into the arc and then hand polished to a high gloss.
I have a 2/3 scale Tomahawk on a pedestal in my yard that weighs 650 pounds. You can see that one on my web site. http://kevinschraderart.us/
