You can't have this one. It's a protoype of the HALstation 330 and 350 with unique "winged" drive-bay access doors. HAL settled on the more conventional door on the present model because the swing-wide flaps can be awkward in tight spaces. Fred Berkowitz, a HAL platform development director and father of the winged design, dreams of revisiting the weird-door idea in a future model, in the form of panels that slide back as on a minivan.
