My wife and i really like the MASH TV series, all nine seasons. :thumbup:

I wanted to build something from this TV series, and thought the helicopter would be the most challenging,

and i don't think i've seen one very well done in my BS and MOCpages searchs.

If i'm wrong about that, please feel free to point out where the folders are! :grin:

Well here it is. The Bell 47 Mash Helicopter.

I'm not satified with all of the brick colors, but i am very satisfied with how it looks.

I think it turned out great. The colors look good to me -- very subtle, unless you are referring to the windshield which is a bit bright for the overall color scheme of the model. Sometimes (actually, most times) you build with what you got.

You've certainly captured it very well Phred! :thumbup:

The tail is well done, is it sturdy?

The colors look ok to me, though all dark grey and some M*A*S*H* stickers would be great.

The canopy might look nice in trans black.

There's just 1 thing i'm missing in there, where's the guy in the dress? :laugh:

Very impressive little helicopter, especially the lattice work for the tail. I can't figure out how you've done that. The only obvious improvement I think of would be to replace the trans neon green bubble canopy with a similar item in transparent clear (it can be found in agents set 8969).

Cheers,

Ralph

It looks great.

My suggestions on an unlimited budget: :tongue:

maybe change the fuselage to dark green

replace the windschields for the patients by bubbles

But still very recognizable and that's what counts :thumbup:

Thanks guys! :blush:

As Mr. Spade said, I used only pieces that i had for now.

In my Constitution BL purchases, i hope to add some more proper colored elements (Like a trans black canopy :wink: ).

The lattice tail is as strong as it needs to be.

Doesn't Klinger work with the Jeeps :tongue: ?

I guess my next MASH model will have to be a jeep.

...especially the lattice work for the tail. I can't figure out how you've done that.

I put thread through 3mm flex hose.

Unfortunately the hose is a clone, but i could never cut up a lego brick. :cry_happy:

The main support is three 3mm, rigid hoses, which are lego hoses.
