    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes assembled and pre-painted. So glue and model paints are not required.

    HU-1, was essentially a stretched (model 47) with room for 7 troops or three stretchers in it's cargo compartment behind the pilot. It was re-designated as the Utility Helicopter UH-1 in 1962 under a tri-service agreement. The HU-1A, initially procured by the Army in 1959 as a general utility helicopter, was the first model ordered in large numbers. Since 1959, the helicopter has evolved through 13 models, A thru V. It saw wide use in Vietnam following initial fielding in September 1962. The helicopter saw service with the 82nd Airborne Division, the 101st Airborne Division, and the 57th Medical Detachment. The helicopter became the basis for the creation of the 1st Aviation Brigade in 1966.
