Default Looking into building a scale helicopter

Got a new job that requires me to fly helicopters pretty often. So far I've flown on a s-76, s-61, and just flew on a s-92 the other day. The 92 is definitely the coolest one I've been on so far. Anyways, to my question, What would be a good helicopter to start with as a baseline? Also, is there any website besides a forum that would have tons of info about building a scale heli?

Thanks,
Will

Theres at least one forum I know thats dedicated to making scale helis.
There's lots of choices for heli mechanics around.. To some extent it depends on the heli you are modelling and if you are using a premade fuse.
For example all the scale heli fuses I offer are based around align 400,500,600 etc or a clone.. THough the have parts to also fit them to logo16, swift etc in many cases.

Have a look at http://www.scalerchelis.com/phpBB2/portal.php

Thanks, I found that site last night through google. Tons of info. I'm just not heli oriented, so I don't really know what's out there. This would be my first heli besides my piccolo.
