Anyone have M5A1 Rear Hull Stowage Box blue prints to share?

Does anyone have blue prints (to scale) of the rear M5A1 stowage box? I have one built on to the4 back of my STU but after seeing the real thing decided to re-build a new one. Also if someone has blueprints for the rear turret bussel.

I'm working on a master for Panzerwerk using dimensions I made at a museum. One minor difficulty is that the armor angle on the kit is wrong so some adjustments have to be made to the actual measurements. If I can find the some time I will try to make my rather cryptic notes into something others can use if they just aren't into resin.

Blue Prints

I would love to have a set of prints, as well. About the time I was going to buy one of these from Steel Dragosn, they stopped making them.

Same here

I have some nice detail photos of the one at Jacques Littlefield's I can post or send if anyone needs them. I took the pictures as I was going to build my own but then other projects started.

Regards
Tim

I am actually using Jacques Littlefield's photos as referrence for my stowage bins. Knowing my luck a kit will available once I have completed mine but at least I will have the satisfaction of building mine from scratch. This is a nice scale to work with as you can go as deep as you want with detail. My hinges are a little big but it just looks better. Had to settle for Screen Window mess for the rear of the stowage bin.I may finnish it tonight. Now if I could only post some pix.
