Original MB for the 129 were Hirschmann but are no longer available. Anything else will need modifying to fit.

I have a Japanese spec Panasonic Aerial and the gears are chewed with no replacement parts I need a replacement unit.

The problem with the 129 is the very steep angle the mast needs to fit to.
My thought would be to buy a Hirschmann and find an H04 mast (or H05 if you want black chrome) and fit the new mast to the Hirschmann motor since complete unit is no longer available.

The threaded section where the mast mounts needs to be very long compared to normal masts.
