I have both an RK11-C, _and_ a DX11 light panel sitting around (got it
loose some years back)

Looks cool.

Put me down for one.  I've had this RK11-C for a long time and haven't
done anything with it.  I have always planned to put it back on the
11/20 it came with, but first I need to get the 11/20 going so that's
pushed down the RK11-C.  This would be really cool as a debugging tool
more than just as amazing lights.


P.S. - not to derail things, but definitely loop me in on the (future)
thread for making reproductions.  I have access to some tools that
might make parts of it easier.
