Suggestions for Buying TOS Control Panel

I'd like to purchase a smallish section of TOS control panel to serve as a background for a tricorder display I'm having built. For whatever reason, I'm coming up blank looking in the traditional places such as eBay. if you have any suggestions, I'd to hear them.

Thanks for your time!

If you just want a button panel like on the bridge consoles, you can create one fairly cheap. This Ebay seller regularly lists lots of 100 Trek prop replica buttons to create your own panels. Paint a piece of 1/8" or 1/4" masonite gloss black, glue a bunch of them on and there you are.
