Default Picture needed of Wanderlodge engine door hinge

Guys, I need a picture of the hinge assembly for the engine doors on the newer Wanderlodge or Express Coaches that Swing open like this one in the pic below.

I have a set of these doors but no hardware. If I were to use a regular hinge, the door would hit the body of the coach, so it has to open and come out a little at the same time.... Anyone have a pic?

No pic, but I remember that hinge - it was a work of art, probably weighed about 20 pounds. Looked like it was machined out of a solid lump of billet steel. Picture something about 10 inches high with a stout pin and a hooked arm. The arm was j-shaped (when sighting down from above) with dimensions roughly 8"x 12"x1" (height x length x thickness). If you need to clear an obstacle with a hinge, the trick is to put a bend in the arm.

I know its something fancy, thats why I need a pic, so I can have one made.
The Fab guy who is doing all the metal work on the coach says he only needs a pic and he can do it.
