Hobby King Twin 70mm EDF Mig 29

Hi.

Not sure if anyone can help?
I Purchased the above model, which arrived last October (2011) with a damaged Canopy!
I have sent Hobby King several emails, requesting a replacement, but to no avail.

Bit of a long shot really, but does anyone know of somewhere I could get a suitable replacement part, as the model is unflyable without it!
I have tried to form the clear canopy from fizzy drinks bottles, but every attempt has ended up looking worse than the cracked plastic of the damaged part.
The Original has a thin Ply base, which is undamaged, but the clear glass part has been crushed during transit, and has some small fragments missing!

Any help would be most useful.

Kindest regards

Andy

If I can figure out how, I'll try and upload some pictures!
I have to confess to not even thinking of a temporary fix, just to get it flying!
Thanks for now though!
