I would suggest you begin with the HH65A Dolphin made by Revell (1/72) or Trumpeter (1/48).
Looks as if a little modification and scratch building could have you on your way.
Do you have more reference photos than the ones on the site you listed?

I know it's only rock and roll, but I like it.

Hey Perah!!

I agree with Don. Start with either the Revell or Trumpeter. The 565 is an upgraded Dolphin, with the main upgrade being the change from Avco Lycoming LTS-101-750 engines to Turbomeca Arriel engines. All of the little addtions look like they could easiliy be scratch built.
