Best bet is to rip apart kids toys, fire engines etc, these usually have chrome dials fittied to side, gauges etc.....

There is also Hobby Lobby Modelbau

I make some lighted options for ASD tugs, but your tug would have different consoles.

I used old circuit boards, drilled through and inserted fibre optics for my tug bridge - http://www.danwalker.co.uk/Harbour_Tug_html/tugpart19.html
