Its a full size 8/e front panel.
Its made to be a replacement for damaged front panels on real PDP8/e's
I doubt it would fit anything else.
There is a possibility of a lights and switches panel to go with it if
we can solve the
problem of the lack of the lever operated switches that are a feature
of the PDP8
However its a case of if you don't have an 8/e now or are building one
then this panel is not for you.
