Just in case....
I have a Nova 3 as well, in my garage. It has its switch levers, but I
have no spares.
I do have an Eclipse S/130 spare front panel, which I expect has the
exact same lever configuration (though perhaps not the same number of
switches - I can check that out tomorrow), but its switch levers are
blue (I suppose you could paint them, or I could lend you one from
either machine so you could model it and have someone make you some
using a 3D printer). I don't know how hard the levers are to separate
from the switch at this point. If I can remove one
safely without TOO
much difficulty, I'd be more than happy to make some scans,
photos, etc., if no better alternative surfaces.

Anybody has some spare to sell at reasonable price?
In the case I cannot find the original levers, I could try to realize
a mold to reproduce it using model-casting resins.
I would need however some kind of mechanical drawings, or also some
good picture made together with a ruler, so dimensions
can be somehow measured on the picture itself.
An idea could be to use a scanner as imaging device, as it will not
deform the image, and to scan the lever, specially on the side.
Anybody can help?
Thanks in advance
