Is There a Replacement for the Louvered Grille on the Lancia Stratos?

Howdy from Texas,

Does anyone know if there is a replacement for the louvered grille on the front bonnet of the Lancia Stratos. I've got the Fujimi Stratos' but there is flashing in the molded through louvers and they are too delicate to fix.

I am hoping that there is a photo-etch or resin substitute so that I can cut out the original plastic louvers and replace them.

Thanks in Advance.

Are you talking about the slotted openings on to of the hood (bonnet) versus the front air intake grill?

If so, I have never seen any. Studio 27 does PE sets for the Hasegawa issue Stratos (but can be made to work on the old Revell or Fujimi), but this is representative of what is on them:

Thanks for the reply. It's too bad. The Fujimi kits are great except for the slotted openings.
