Description Extended Information
 
Corgi US51904 USMC Bell H-13 MedEvac Helicopter - HMX-1, Marine Air Ground Museum, Quantico, VA (1:48 Scale) "My God, we simply have to figure a way out of this situation. There's no point in talking about 'winning' a nuclear war."
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

The Bell H-13, or as the Marines like to call it, "HTL" (Helicopter Training Light), was one of the first helicopters ever used in combat. The Marines employed them in a variety of ways from medical evacuation and mountain hopping to observation and administration flights.

This particular 1:48 scale helicopter comes equipped with stretchers mounted over the chopper's sleds. Like the other vehicles in the "Forgotten Heroes" Collection, this vehicle has been 'muddied' to give it a more weathered appearance. Sold Out!

Dimensions:
Rotorspan: 9-inches
Length: 3-inches

Release Date: October 2003

Historical Account: In 1948, HMX-1 (the "X" stood for experimental) received their first HTLs. From 1948 until 1953, HMX-1 used the HTLs to train all new Marine helicopter pilots. The model features the distinctive Marine Corps gloss sea-blue paint scheme. This exact helicopter can be seen at the Marine Air Ground Museum in Quantico, VA.
