Perhaps, you want to be more of sspecific how you want your panel to be created, ie: backlite panels, lettering over the top of the materials, cnc milling machine or etc. What type of material you intend to use? Ie: wood, acrylic, lexan, cardboard or etc. For dimension,I wouldn't know...neither among to most cockpit builder. Only way I can tell you to find a exact dimension is where you would want to do a research on it. (as matter of fact, its hard fo find dimension for B767 due to lack of popular demands, compared to B747s,A320s,B737s) You may want to look at previously topic where there are few builder buddies suggesting about vareity methods on creating panels which dated on 2-14-04 (I think) Good luck!

http://www.simpit.de/above link brings you to a website with dimensions of the B767.unlike stated above, there are quite a few 767 builders around.if this is the info you need, try and find them & contact them.if you want info on making panels in general (not 767 specific) like how to make real-looking-back-lit panels ... well there are a few things to be found on this forum.whichever you find, they will all be as hard to make and one will be more expencive than the other.while plenty of people build cockpits those days .. only a handfull of them can create those kind of quality panels. unless they buy panels from FlightDeckSollutions or other such vendors.if you just want panels without backlight there is the option for you to chose any kind of material like metal/wood/plastic and then use a label printer (like Dymo or Brother) to finish it off.
