Resurrection Jet Ranger body

Resurrection Jet Ranger body. I got a request if I had anything to fit a 500 size heli and i wasnt really sure if I did or didnt. I was given a few specs and I begin to dig thru my stash. I came up with an old Corona fuselage I make and from the specs given, should fit the 500 size heli. I do have plans on also fitting one of my 450 size helis inside of this fuselage which shouldnt be a problem at all. May even be able to get a front cockpit inside. (Good thing I didnt toss the moulds) For the 450, I am going to have to make a platform for the mechanics to sit on . The tailboom was made a little long so I am going to have to cut some off the end for my 450 heli which is not a problem. Heres some pics of the 450 size with the Corona 206 and a few pics of others Corona jet Rangers Hard to believe the Corona Jet ranger fuse is about 6-7 years old. time has flown by.

I really need some solid specs of a typical 500 size chassis. . frame height, width mainshaft to Tail shaft distance
I was given the specs of a blackhawk 500 (I think thats the one) wich is pretty much a stretched 450 and it looks like it will fit this fuselage but an actual T-rex or clone there of would probably let me know a little more whether or not this will fit. If it does, I will probably add more detailing to the fuselage .

More info to add, Im doing this for someone who was looking for a body for his heli which is a BlackHawk 500. According to the specs given me he says its slightly bigger than the 450 but slightly smaller than the T-rex 500. With the specs given me of the heli this should be a good fit.
I dont know if this would be a good fit to a 500 size heli such as the T-rex 500 or Clone there of. Dont want this to be misleading for those who may think this might work on the T-rex 500 size and clone like helis but it does look like it will be a good match to the BlackHawk 500 according to the specs given to me.
