Does anyone know if a 3d view is available for this one? I think the answer is yes because the great 3d render which shows the crane.

circle-5 said:Presentation model of the Hughes XH-28A crane helicopter -- the ultimate development of the original Kellett design.
Twin yaw-control rotors and final, 3-blade main rotor are visible here. The model's main rotor was over 4-ft. in diameter and mounted on ball bearings.
Photo was scanned from the model maker's offset-printed advertising flyer (Time Miniature Displays in Burbank, a.k.a. Southwick Models), to explain the poor quality. Southwick was a model contractor for Convair, NAA, Hughes, Northrop, Lockheed, Radioplane and others.
