Help!
1/96 Ticonderoga anchor &bolster

Hi everyone ,
Hoping someone can help, I'm in build progress on a scale shipyard 1/96 Tico, now I'm having a very hard time finding the bolster for the hull, I've tried a variety of build techniques to try to make one and they have all come out ,,, well not to good, does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can find one

lean hull over, place masking tape over the bolster position. place a glob of bondo a little bigger than bolster on the masking tape and let it cure, you now have a piece that can be carved, filed and sanded to shape, (its back side matches the curves of the hull) the second one you make will look better..
