Thanks for all those, Scott. I've put together the SWP and it's all worked out pretty well.
One compromise I think we're going to have to make - in order to make the illuminated lenses blend in reasonably, we may have to go without the red letters on black, and use something more resembling the replacements with black lettering on illuminated plastic. Not sure yet, but if so, it's not really a massive deal if it will look better when actually operating. Hopefully we'll find out soon!

That compromise was not necessary, in fact - I found a better way to do the modelling, and can indeed do red illuminated lettering on black.
Unfortunately, I've made a rather more serious error - I used the AWP faceplate as the basis for the layout, and only just realised that while the AWP has fourteen indicators, the SWP has sixteen So a major modification is required, and one that will not be at all easy because of the varying degrees of useability in the photos...
This is not turning out to be my day. Anyhoo, here's a screenie of the (inaccurate) SWP with all lamps lit:
No binning planned, there will just end up being two - one fourteen lamp and one sixteen lamp - no doubt it appears on other aircraft of the period too. I'll try and make the associated script as interchangeable as possible.
Thanks, Scott. I'll try and grab it at some point over the weekend. I've got even less development time than usual in December - it's a super busy month for me with barely a whole day free - but I'll read what you've done and start thinking about the scripting.
