I don't think so. It's been very long since I played with an 11/40, but 
the 11/40 and 11/45 have way fewer switches than the 11/70, and the 
frame lines up with the switches on the 11/70.
Can't remember for sure the exact details of the 11/40 I played with, 
but it must have had some kind of filler on the panel, to get to the edges.

If I remember right, the RDC panel reused the 11/70 panel frame, by the way.

By the way, I could kill whoever broke an 11/70 just to have a panel. 
And that panel on ePay looks really clean (but that's just me, and I 
don't like ePay at all anyway).
