...consists of some parts which will arive mostly from China during the coming month.
Wish me luck!

You are wrong!
It can only be a quantum hyperspace generator for a trans-galactic spaceship.
I thought only the CIA had the plans :D :D :D

A SAS silly-post manager with pre-registered responses and topic-dumping automation? o_O We're doomed!

I thought of buying many times a panel switch but good old '46 does not support switches (which would be the main reason to get one). I mean in example: lights on/off toggles

It's a lightbox for psychic power tests. It can't be wrong, I got a vision of it :D

What will it be? A replica or an own development?

Still waiting for the last parts to arrive (board, pin strip, on/off switches), but here's the layout draft already (see attachment).
This is true size. You'll note that the layout is quite narrow, but I deem it still feasible.
Don't want to have a large box on the desk - my goal was rather to have distinctive hardware buttons and switches with labels so I don't always have to scan manuals for the right key combo for what I'm just intending to do.
The pushbuttons are about half of the drawing's diameter in real life, the ones on the layout were made larger to give an idea of the space requirement inside the casing.

By far not all of the controls have been assigned yet.
I'll have to make my way through IL-2 1946 and IL-2 Great Battles keys and axis to finally consider the right layout.

Cheers!
Mike

Well the last part arrived yesterday, in a way.
It's been male/female board sockets for the Arduino/Teensy sub-board, 10pcs each ordered from China.
Took 5 weeks to arrive, and then only one single female socket reached the target. Dammit.
I've ordered parts from local source now, together with some extra switch diodes since the 50 I've had are not enough.

Preliminary Board layout for the meantime, created using Blackboard Circuit Designer (Freeware, Setup is in the "install" folder on GitHub)

An old employer once had me breadboard up a transcutaneous electrical simulator for his acupuncture side business.

It kind of looked a bit like Mike's project, had a bunch of mosfet quad op-amps ganged with dozens of Schottky lowpass diodes and capacitors.
