Default Looking for used Patriot ARF cowl

Just wondering if any of you guys might have a good condition cowl for a
Patriot ARF (red)
Bought a nice used plane but no cowl with the deal.

That is going to be a challenge to find I bet...The plastic cowl for the patriot was flimsy, you may be better off making one out of balsa or even better a fiber-glass version---

I love the Patriot ARF except for the plastic pieces... (Easy fix though just making balsa replacements)

Thanks Razor - - - if one doesn't show up I may have to fabricate a balsa copy or maybe find something close in fibreglass. In fact the guy I got the plane from, sent a fibreglass cowl supposedly to fit a Patriot but it is too small to fit around the bulkhead joint.

There is a Glass version available from Fiberglass specialties. However it's not to hard to build a balsa nose either.
