Plastistruct in America got back to me and gave me these pictures of what they think are the correct pieces for the "Logopolis" door opener.

 David,   did you ever post the links or part numbers for these? I would love to get a set for display purposes.

Dear Mr. Mat Irvine,
     ...
3. There is a green thing on the console that I have absolutely no idea how to describe. It might be a pump of some kind. (Picture 5)

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Nathan King


and so he was kind enough to respond and actualy was able to identify one of the above Tardis Console Parts.

Hi Nathan

...

3) However the good news is I can tell you exactly what this is! This is
built from EMA parts that are actually 'cable trays'. The 'squared off'
tubular part is made what looks like ref # EVS(TG)1690 parts, while it
sits on two Tee Connectors - # ETS(TG)24. (The 'TG' is the colour, here
transparent green' - which it obviously is - the last digits are the
size, which may not be correct - there are two options - 16 and 24.
Ditto the '1690' may not be correct as there is also 2490)
These EMA parts are some of the special items that really only
professional modeller would use. They are not in the Plastruct catalogue
and will only be available by special order, or from EMA direct in
Shepperton.
Incidentally the central grey tube and the small green hemisphere are
also EMA.


Good luck!


Cheers

...let's be careful out there...


so that's cool.  - now I'm going to write him a nice "thank you" email.


I think this is the address for the EMA he was talking about : http://www.ema-models.co.uk/

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

I'd love a printable model of that for my console. I'd have to adjust the size down though.

I just noticed... in The Visitation, the device Nyssa builds to destroy the android features a similar component to the green cube thing where she connects the power cable.
