Altair 8800B Clone?

Would it be possible to convince you to do a clone of the 8800B? It shouldn't be that much work to convert the current Clone (this from a person who has no idea!) and I think people would be interested in buying one. A replacement front panel would be nice even without the flat-handled switches.

It could be done, but the overlay for the front panel would be an expensive piece due to tooling and the cost of a minimum order. Also, it just really wouldn’t seem like an 8800b without the long flat toggles.

Functionally, it’s no different than the 8800 other than the accumulator functions added to what used to be the Aux switches.
