Detailed 1/72 scale assembly model kit of the Sikorsky H-19 Chickasaw (designated HO4S for the United States Navy and Coast Guard) multi-purpose helicopter operated by the United States, United Kingdom, and many other nations in the world. Introduced in 1950, the H-19 was the first true transport helicopter of the U.S. Army, and the H-19 helicopters served successfully alongside the earlier Sikorsky H-5 Dragonfly during the Korean War. Widely exported, the H-19 became one of the most popular transporter helicopters in the world. This Italeri 1/72 scale assembly kit features the H04S-3 variant, a re-engine U.S. Navy & Canadian version fitted with a 700 hp, (522kW) Wright R-1300 engine. This kit comes with detailed exterior and interior, including cabin bench seats, crystal clear parts for windshield and windows, and decals for U.S. Marines, Royal Canadian Navy versions.
