I believe Cutting Edge used to do one.

I wonder.. could you fill the later dolphin nose with resin, CA glue it to the fuselage, and then file and shape it down to the profile pictured?

Sorry mate, just found it myself.  Had an urge to see if I could find one for myself.  I think Graeme has the right idea, just fill the original kit nose or pack a big wad of putty on the fuselage and sand to shape.  To be honest, the $10.00 price on the winning bid was a surprise but something as esoteric as the Roman Nose conversion would not really be one of those must have items for most modelers.  I like the look of it as it reminds me of the Boeing YC-14 program and the similar shape of the nose on that aircraft.

Contact the seller? Maybe they have another one stashed away?
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
