Default Early Du Bro heli pics anyone

Does anyone have any pics of the Du Bro heli? Not the Wirlybird but the one powered by an O&R gas engine and later a .60. I think it was called the Shark.

My first try at helicopters was with this bird.

Vintage RC Helicopters is one of the best sites for this type of information.

I remember mid 70 Bob Bentley from dubro would bring this to flyins in the Chicago area and a successfully takeoff and landing regardless if it made it back to the field was met with thunderous applause.
