Diroma mash
Posted by armor 2.0 on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 8:01 AM

I was wondering what make of chopper was used on mash and if there a kit that represents it. Im thinking of doing a diroma  representing mash. I always like that show.

The helicopter used in the show and in the Korean war was the Bell-47D, military designation H-13D.

Actual H-13Ds in Korea.

There is a 1/35 kit of it by MRC/Academy.

It is a great kit.  It does not have specifically decals from the show M*A*S*H, but actual US Army decals from the Korean war.

If you want decals from the show, Revell has a 1/35 H-13H, which is actually a Vietnam War version, not Korean War.  This kit has the same fictional markings that were used on the TV show.

The Revell version has later features such as the rounded skid supports and separate fuel tanks as opposed to straight skid supports and one large tank on the D model (among a few other, smaller differences throughout).

There were three Revell M*A*S*H kits released by Revell around 1994-95 or so. In addition to the chopper, they also did a vacuformed "Swamp" tent with Willys Jeep with Radar driving, Hotlips and Hawkeye standing. The third kit was Revell's old M35 deuce and a half with Klinger in nurse's uniform, Colonel Potter, BJ and a wounded soldier on a stretcher.

I've seen them on eBay go for around $20-25.
