let me clarify that, it is not the actual dial scale, but the piece of plastic background that is attached with 4 pop rivets. Mine is yellowed, i assume the original was more white or cream colored. The dial pointer would ride on the top of it.

You are asking for the light diffuser panel behind the lens.
Most old radios will have yellowed panels so the chance of finding a white one are slim.
Light diffusing plastic sheets are available on line or maybe at a crafts store that sells lamp parts or photography equipment.
