Revell did three MASH sets in the mid 90s using old Monogram molds. The old Monogram Jeep (one that used to come with a 37mm anti tank gun) with Radar driver, Hawkeye, Hotlips and a vacuformed tent called "The Swamp Scene". They did the old Monogram M34 deuce and a half (originally called Eager Beaver) along with Col. Potter, BJ, Klinger in a white nurse outfit and patient on stretcher called "Medical Scene".

Third kit was the Bell chopper which was a new tooled kit back then.

I do not recall an ambulance in this series. Revell of Germany reissued the two old Monogram kits (without MASH stuff) called Jeep and M34 Tactical Truck as kit #03029. The Jeep is a WW2 one and the truck is late 1950s-1960s era.

They are 1/35.

There was no MASH ambulance kit, but the MASH Jeep and Truck were, as noted, the ex Monogram kits.  The Tactical Truck and Jeep have been reissued again.  They lack the original Monogram figurs (and gun for the jeep)

MPC did a series of MASH kits too. They had a Jeep and Truck that were not the old Monogram kits. I assume they may have been MPC originals.

Maybe you are remembering the excellent kit-bash in Fine Scale Modeler (with story) of the M-34 to an ambulance article. I think that was in the mid-80's, before or after my gallbladder surgery (weird way to remember things, huh?).

He may be remembering the Testors/Italeri yellow boxed Dodge WC ambulance. That was originally a Peerless Max kit and has been out of production for a number of years.

The Dodge Ambulance has been out in plain Italeri boxes off and on since the 80s.  If it is not currently out, it isn't hard to get. That is the only 1/35 plastic US Ambulance kit. Italeri also does a Jeep ambulance with stretchers.
