I don’t see anything on the kaidoman site, The only thing that I see is one on aliexpress for Astrolux, looks pretty good but pricey just cover and retaining ring.

You could get that Astrolux assembly and then get the lighted switch board from MTN which might work with it.

I’ve been looking for the same thing for a while, eventually I bought the switch board and buttons for the Q8 and thought I would have to fabricate the rest. Switches and buttons are still available on the Soforn Aliex site, select the switch from accessories and send a note about the specific buttons you want.

I might ask Sofirn for a complete assembly, I have had good luck with other requests from them.

Can someone post the link to the Astrolux assembly, I couldn’t find it.

I have been communicating with the Aliex contact for the Sofirn store and will be able purchase switch parts.

It took a few messages back and forth over a few days but we worked out the specifics.

The new SC31 has a flat rectangular base plate side switch that will work for a light I am making so I will be buying 4-5 of them.

I don’t know what other switch parts are available or what number you would need to order but Sofirn has always been extremely helpful with me to try and work something out.
