    Hey guys, another Viper cockpit part to identify and source. I've Google searched images, been to ebay, aliexpress, adafruit, etc, looking for this thing.

    Trying to keep it accurate is making it hard to find. The mock-up was made in the 2003.

    It needs to be 12V, illuminated, push on push off. It looks to be somewhere between 30 and 40 mm across. (The instrument underneath has an 80mm diameter face.)

    While I'm at it, I'm also looking for this warning lamp. (red circle on the left) Looks to be red or orange with a tapered cylindrical lens and a white gripped retaining ring.

    I'm speaking out of complete ignorance... can you cast a clear acrylic button to fit over the smaller one that McRutch mentioned?

    On my screen, everything on those pix is black and impossible to make out properly. I'm hoping this helps others.

    32mm and 36mm pushbutton heads are around that are similar to the big red button.

    or another bigger red one. Clear would look a little iffy and you'd be able to see the inperfect glue.

    Thanks for all your leads guys, they have really helped me narrow it down.
    I found this one, which is close to all the ones you fellows have provided.

    I'm going to be patient and hold off though, as one of the gentlemen who worked on the 2003 series set and props has just contacted me. I'll see what he has to say before I pull the trigger on anything.

    Thanks ladies and gents.

    Baz.
