Looks like the answer to the question that nobody asked. Especially the landing gear.

OK, so this thing will cost about $15 million, conservatively. Then you get a crew trained and a captain type rated, another huge expense. Then they sit around, cooking chili and watching TV until the next tsunami strikes? If it's a "disaster relief" aircraft, wouldn't windows be nice - to look for survivors?

I do agree that co-axial would be efficient for medium lift.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just take an existing BIG helicopter, and build their "boat" to be a sling load?

You could build a bunch of their "boats", air lift them in full of supplies, as the supplies are off loaded, you reload with people, rinse, repeat.....

It would help if the pilots had windows to see where they're going.

A boat that would float upside down due to the weight of the rotor system and transmission.

Well, it is only a model.... so I guess they've not wanted to properly paint on the windows.

A cockpit window certainly is implied. If you go to the link and then click on the first pic to enlarge it, there is a label "anti-glare surfaces" pointing to just below where the windscreen would be.

Side windows would be good too! (nothing mentioned)

Tach.
