Default Centurion late sponson bins??

Hi everyone
Has anyone heard if someone is making the later side opening sponson bins for Tamiya Centurion? I know there are a few people on this forum who do 3D printing or maybe someone on Shapeways. The later bins would allow for many other versions and countries that used them. I guess a new turret roof would also be good ,with the redesigned loaders hatch. Certainly would open up more accurate Israeli versions.

Hi Dave
The new Haya Cent has a alternative turret roof available. - Mk 3 is standard, Mk 5 the alternative. Both Tamiya & Tongde are Mk 3 style, though the Tongde is sold as a Mk 5.
Re the hull stowage bins - Tamiya is top loading Mk 3, Tongde is side loading Mk 5, and Haya looks to be Top loading from above, but from the side, has the side loading latches. I don't think any of them actually open.

Unfortunately I don't have a huge selection of images for the TongDe Cent, though there is a video at - TongDe M60 -
