cement shingles

I have a home with asbestos siding. When the did the siding many many years ago, it is obvious that there was decorative window trims above each of the windows in my home that were removed, thrown out and then covered in metal flashing. because the flashing above my windows is about 10-12 inches tall!

I will be, one window at a time, redoing the windows and adding a decorative trim back up there and I need to find a cement shigle that is a replica of the asbestos shingle of yesteryear. I have hear that james hardi has them but I am not a dealer or distributor and I am only looking to order a few (maybe 50 to start)

any help?

Replacement shingles can be found, but you'll have to look around. They may not match the style you currently have. My local lumber yard has some... if you posted a pic of yours I could tell you if they would match.
