    If I recall it's on Gary Weaver's CAD drawing that's floating around... It even has the whole spacing for the switches though I don't know if the locations have been confirmed as accurate.

    I have that actually, but aside from most of the things on there that make sense as to what they are, I can't figure out which would be the side plates or even front plate to the plutonium gauge panel.

    Steven's "Guru" Gary here.... lol

    Here's one I'm finishing off from the parts mentioned by Steven...

    Switch layout isn't technically screen accurate but a nicer even lay out in my opinion




    I use the lid with vents for the TFC's I build with built in sound affects and have new lids made without vents for those without....



    Here's a link to the perforated aluminium for the side panels of the plutonium gauges that I use....

    "Dollar parasites"... That's one I haven't heard before.

    Good one Mr. Anonymous.

    OK... My mistake. I went and looked and the triangles aren't there... The front plate is there but the holes are not shown for the gauges... Just the overall size 15.5" x 5"

    Wow- That switch layout is exactly what I have been looking for.... One switch every inch! Can you tell me how you create the sound effects? Also, what is the proper size of the red and green jewel lights?
    Thanks a million
    Charlie
    ps- It took me 3 attempts before I could bend the plexi properly!

    Thank you very much for such an interesting and informative response. I love reading your kind responses to peoples questions and learning such incredible detail about the history of the parts. You really are of huge benefit to the community.

    I completely understand about the sensitivity of some of this information, especially considering the intellectual property of others involved. I think it is very respectful of you to consider them before just simply publicising information.

    No need to apologize at all! I am very grateful for the information that you have kindly shared with us.

    Thanks again for your time.
    Thanks for the kind words, I just try to help out wherever I can :-)
