Can you identify this latching mechanism?

I am getting back into RC after being gone from it for about 20 years. I am completing a large scale B-25 and need some nice looking mechanisms for a latch removal system where I plan on putting the Lipos. These hatches will be on the bottom side of the nacelles.
I have one of these latches. Need two. It is a quarter turn mechanism that can be custom cut to length.
Anyone recognize this or know where I can get something similar. I have thought about Camlocs from full size aircraft....

OK - how bad do you want a pair, new in the pak?

BTW, the steel pin looks like about an inch long. Not sure if there were different sizes.

How much do you want for a pack? Are there any other choices that you can think of for a hatch latch? I do have a pak of these coming.....

Try online auctions, or post to a few forums, you may find someone holding onto them. You could also replace those latches with magnets.

I think Norm is helping me out.

I really can't use magnets on this particular latch because it is being mounted underneath the nacellle. needs to have a positive lock.

You mean like a different mechanism? If so, I'm open to suggestions because obviously this latch is in limited supply.

I'll draw up an idea I've got tonight, shouldn't be hard to implement and someone probably already makes something similar.

Sorry, I have not been stuck between working and rebuilding my model. I'll try to whip something out today though.
