Operating Hopper Cars

Just a quick one, do any manufacturers produce an operating hopper car in Japanese livery?

I know Fleischmann do one in Euro/GDR livery, l think that may be the only one though.

As far as I am aware none of the main manufactures do in N scale.  ARU may have made a brass kit of a narrow gauge mine hopper that could side dump once upon a time, but I haven't seen it for sale in a few years.

Fleischmann and Minitrix did V-shaped skip wagons years ago, but they're a bit big for N (the real things are usually small enough for a couple of people to shove a loaded one). Other than that I can only think of Fleischmann offering scale German hoppers with operating dump mechanisms. They made three styles in assorted liveries last time I looked, along with a large corrugated steel structure to unload them.
