Good luck with the engine.
There are plenty of helicopter T-55s out there, but before I spent that kind of money on a PROJECT, I'd make sure I get get an engine for the sucker.
Sure, the hot section parts would work ,but what about the probably unique prop gearbox?

If you want a turbine trainer, how about a T-34C or Tucano?
At least you can get engines for them.

Why not put a PT6A-67F on it? Besides the money thing.

I hope it finds a buyer: a bit more interesting than yet another Spitfire or P-51.

Nothing wrong with it, but unless the PT6 is the same size, weight and has the same intake and exhaust as the T55 you'd have to re-engineer or redesign the front of the airframe and come up with basically a homebuilt.
