masonite stuccato siding needs repairs


Hi, I am new to this forum and didn;t find my problem in a search so here goes.
I built my house in the early 70's and made it an English Tudor style using Masonite's Stuccato exterior hardboard siding. (it looks like white stucco). The sheets were 4' x8 or 9' and around 1/2" thick. I have done some repairs over the years but have run out of my extra stock. I understand there were issues with this siding back in the 80's and law suits were filed etc.
I need 3 or 4 sheets of either this stuff or something that looks similar to repair some recent water damage. I also understand this stuff has not been produced for a number of years so where do I go?
My wife does NOT want to change the style of the house and I do not want to spend a lot of money just now on residing the whole place.
I saw another forum for contractors only where someone was asking for the a\same thing last year but can't find out if they were successful or not.
Can anyone help me find a product?
Thanks
Stan

There currently is nothing on the marketplace.

I would use cement board and stucco to match existing, if you can't afford to replace it all now.

Thanks guys, The Hardie panel doesn't look exact but looks close enough.
I just requested a sample from them and they have several dealers nearby.
I think my problem has been resolved.
Thanks a lot for the help and a great forum.
I am real glad I found it.
I know I will be be checking it out for other topics.

We have used the Hardie panels and they work well. Not a perfect match, but if you choose the right places to transition, it isn't really noticeable.
