Default Need 12FG replacement part number

Bax and Krysta,
My nephew flies a 12FG on 72 mhz and the plastic top plate that holds the antenna ball socket assembly broke. As you can see in the photos, the molded plastic studs broke loose from the plastic top plate. I've searched the internet but can't find the part number for this piece, or even the correct name for the piece. Can you help me out with the part number and the price of the plastic top plate? Also can this be ordered directly through Hobby Services? Or will it need to be ordered through a hobby shop?

Lucky for my nephew, I also have a 12FG on 2.4 ghz, so I was able to get my nephew flying again by removing the antenna top plate from my transmitter and installing it in his. But now I need the part number to repair the antenna socket on my 12FG transmitter.

Thanks!

Here are the stock numbers and list prices of the parts you asked about:

These parts can be ordered through any hobby retailer who sells Futaba systems and accessories.

Got the part from my LHS within a few days and now have it installed in the 12FG.

Trying to find the part number without your help would have been a nightmare.

So I just wanted to say thank you again Bax!
