I need a hypothetical returns calculator for TSP funds.

I'm going to be taking a 6-month hiatus from contributing to my federal TSP (401K equivalent) account.
I know exactly what I am currently contributing each paycheck, and to which funds as a percentage and an actual cash amount.
I want to be able to calculate hypothetical returns from an arbitrary date so that I can be sure when I have actually made up for the losses incurred by the break.

I'm not quite sure if that's clear enough, so let me know if I'm leaving something important out.
Ideally there is a financial calculator out there that will let me specify a monthly contribution amount, a starting balance, a percentage based fund contribution split, and a starting date and will spit out what my ending balance would have been. Does such a thing exist? How can I approximate it if it doesn't?
