I had the same problem as your having when I did the 500 size EC-145 and used the stretched 450 mechanics.
I ended up making the boom coming out the airframe short ( 3-4") and then that a way I could raise the rear of the airframe to get it mostly level , but with the EC145 having shorter landing gear to the rear than to the front when it is on the ground it looks like the main tilts to the rear but it doesn't.
Of course I don't think you could do that because as my tail rotor gearbox on my EC-145 is mounted to the raised tail mechanics , yours needs to be mounted to the boom which is mounted to the airframe.
So in your case I guess it's one of those things you get what you can get and be happy with it.
