Some photos of a Modal D/C.
For me the Fnat hole seems to be just where I rest my thumb naturally on a regular D.

I designed an awesome 8 hole whistle that can play in any key. The low note is an F. Hole #1 is the thumb hole for the left hand. The tuning is completely non-traditional. It is tuned, 3 half steps, 3 whole steps, and 3 half step. The major 3rd, flat 5th, and augmented 5th (A,B, & C#)are cross fingered. It is well suited for bebop scales, has a 2 octave range, and the holes are positioned for maximum comfort. All the fingerings are easy Half holes are not required. I made the prototype out of 1 inch pvc, but plan to make some bamboo ones. I got tired of the limitations imposed by 6 holes. Here's a pic:Image
