I have always been on the look out for those Landing Light handles. Geremy at GBL have some made in aluminum; at £ 30 they seem to be a good deal. But when adding the postage I would end in €55. I know this is an expensive hobby; but still I thought there ought to be alternatives that could get me started for less.
While browsing the internet I stumbled across a russian forum for A-10 Warthog builders. And there they were! 3D printed landing light toggles. The watermark on the pictures said lynx.dk so that suggested that they came from Denmark where I also live. I I wrote the guy an email and it turns out Daniel behind lynx.dk lives just 150 km from my home.
So I ordered 4 switches at €16 total.
They are 3D printed in grey plastic. You most fit the 3 ball you self and they fir the shaft of the large toggle switches (the 12 mm hole switches).
I decided to give mine a layer of metallic paint (I had some left over from out old grey metallic car).
They turned out pretty good.
And just to clarify: I am not affiliated with Daniel or getting anything from mentioning his product.
