I have the space and power for an 11/70, and, oddly enough, there's an
11/70 in it (and one next to that ;-)

I have a real 11/70 panel that was free from Jay West after he
stripped off all the useful switches from it... my first goal is to
get it working as blinky lights on a real 11/70, then start shopping
around for replacement switches and toggles to get it back in service.
I figure it might take a bit of looking for donor parts, off of, say,
two other broken panels, but it's not too hard a task to accomplish.
Enjoy the panel - real blinkylights are lots of fun.
