I was glad to hear my photos would be welcome and Dick has agreed to post them for me.
First I would like to thank Jeff D, Al Ross, Frank Andruss, and Gerry Gilmartin for providing me with various sources of information and a few photographs that helped me to understand the bridge configuration of the Hellcat.
Photos to follow hope you enjoy them.

Hi Larry, just wanted to take a moment to let you know what an awesome job you did on this build. Are you going to install R/C and if so what type of power and radio system are you thinking about ? Also, what scale is she ?
Again, very nice job.

Gentlemen thanks for the compliments.
My Hellcat is built on a 1/20th scale resulting in an overall length of 42.4 "s and an11 lbs. running weight.
She is remotely controlled with a Specktrum transmitter/receiver unit, and is powered by a pair of 3648 brushless outrunner motors turning 1.4" diameter 3 blade propellers, two LIPO 11.1V batteries provide an hour plus run time at scale speed.
If you can look closely at the one pic with the deck removed you can make out the powertrain.

Very cool Larry, and the fact that it's R/C makes it doubly so! Have you ever seen another Hellcat model either R/C or static?
