Apple Lisa 1 frontplate replica

We all know the Lisa 1 frontplate is becoming a very rare, almost impossible to find and afford item. I was thinking of making a mould for casting this particular frontplate. Would there be others who would like to have a Lisa 1 frontplate replica?

For me, the mould for a small series/prototype should not be very expensive since I have some experience with moulds and the necessary cnc machinery for the production. I just want to know if there is any interest because if not, I would fabricate one by rapid prototyping with similar cost but in much less time.

best regards!

I'd be very interested in this project - I have two upgraded Lisa 1s that I'd like to downgrade, if at all possible. I was also wondering, could you print physical parts for a twiggy drive? I have detailed pictures that I can send you if interested.
