Default Panzer III Cupola/Hatch

Wondered if anyone knew where I could get a Comanders Cupola/Hatch for a Panzer III ? Just bought one with half the hatch broken off, have looked on a few sites but no joy [] Hope someone can help, Also after weathering with wash etc should I use a coat of matt clear to seal it ? I used Enamel for detail and weathering and wondered what would work best, I'm in the UK so needs to be available here, could I just use Humbrol Matt thinned to suit air brush or is there a better product that will be ok with enamel ? Thanks.

Did the hatch itself break or the little hinge assembly? My hinge showed up broken on one of mine too. I first tried to make one from styrene but it's not strong enough for repeated use. Think I'll make one from brass or copper next.

Yes. right on the hinge, bit of brass and some epoxy will probably fix it . . just being lazy looking for a quick fix
