Default NEED A COWLING

I have this very nice FW-190 it was given to me by my dad. Its older ARF pre printed foam over a balsa frame not sure who made it. Busted the cowling in a crash I can't find one anywhere tried fiberglass specialties they did not have a size even close. Need it to 6.5" dia X 7.5 tall. Does anyone know of a different source?

A round cowl like that is pretty easy to make. Just make a foam plug the shape and size you want and go to Lowes or Home Depot and get some glass and resin and lay the glass on the foam and when done and it sets up just pour some acetone or gas in the foam and it will melt away and you have a custom cowl.
