thinking of making a new scale 450 size fuselage

Well, Im getting the bug again to start a new fuselage project for the 450 size helicopter. The thing is dont know which to do. Im chewing on the Eurocopter Tiger 2. Imalso thinking of a vintage sikorsky . Kinda hard to settle on the next project but its getting to be about time.

The MI-28 is another one on my consideration list but its scary to think of the time investment just to get it done.

The 427 ,429 hasnt grown on me yet. Im also thinking of the AS-365 Dauphin but many people will be wanting to put a fenestron tail on it and there isnt one out there that would be scale and powerful enough . When it comes to this size heli I personally dont have a problem running a regular tail rotor on the outside of the scale fenestron opening

The more i look at the CH-34, the more I want to make one. So, that will be my next 450 project. Hope to be able to pull it off. I realize it does have a low sitting tailboom. See if I can do this using a typical elevated tail rotor mechanism. Thanks for helping me make up my mind

Just size the CH-34/S-58 to the typical 450 size heli chassis using a elevated belt drive tail rotor. Looks like this will be a go. Will not be alot of room in the nose section. Might make a turbine nose section (T) Version this will allow for a little more room. (IE: Making both versions) It may be a tail heavy model when using a belt driven tail but the fuselage will be light weight to where you can add weight without making a to heavy of a model. Cant wait to get to the mold making process. I will be making mold templates off the drawings maybe tonight.
