The buttons themselves look the part, but I'd check the black surround. It may or may not set the buttons too far apart. And I don't think the buttons where ever lit (I think they were a piece of wood, much like everything else on the console), but if you're not going for an exact replica of the console, these could inject some life into the panel.

I don't think the slight bezel will affect it at all.  In fact it should make the alignment more precise.  Nice find!

looks like most of this can be made just needs the actuator at the base.

On the subject of buttons ...

that got me thinking about a cool console design idea.

In Case of Button, Break Glass.

Just under a clear illuminated control surface with fine etched digital control markings, Are analogue controls ; switches, buttons, dials, etcetera - it would be cool to see the Doctor struggling away with the console while they are in a jam, and give up all pretense or refinement and using a hammer, smashes open one of the individual pocket recess on a panel just so a switch could be thrown. Obviously this gag has to be used sparingly at first. I'm positive the catharsis console will catch on. and I'd love to hear your thoughts about it.

Pockets on a console example :

I had an an idea for a story that you could remove a roundel and behind would be a glass roundel that says Break in Emergency and behind that is a huge red button or what have you and the auto repair systems fix any level of damage but totally drain the power when you press it.

Sort of like the "extreme emergency" switch in the Pertwee console.

I'd love to see something like that in the console and see it in action, because I like breaking glass. Not any glass, you know, I'm not a vandal, only glass bottles when recycling, it's a hangover from my time in Spain where I had to walk to a special bin just for recycling glass glass. I don't know why, but that bin never stayed put, it was always shifting within the same block. Anyway, it was immensely satisfying throwing glass into that bin, and hearing the glass break.

But it's brilliant. I can totally see it. I don't feel it could work with the current design, but I can see it fitting in one of the sides of the plinth in all of the classic consoles, or in Ecclestone/Tennant's mix 'n' match style, or even in the Smith/Capaldi, in the place there Capaldi pulls the lever from underneath one of the panels to activate the "Battle TARDIS".

I believe I may have found something similar to the 'Handbrake' on Smith's and Capaldi's TARDIS console, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B086SS1M6Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_hsIgFbQKGRMGN

Anyone know of an Amazon or eBay UK link for The Danger Meter? Like on DW2012's series TARDIS? If so that would be great!

It looked scratch built to me.

Um is there anywhere to buy the 'demat lever' from the capaldi tardis? Like either an exact one or very very similar? I don't have the necessary materials to build one.
