do you mean just the c-4 display, or the whole thing?

if you're looking for the whole thing, go to a craft store and pick up a brick of gray clay. print off a label on your computer that says 'C-4' or something, and wrap the clay.

as for the blinking lights on the display, you could keyframe some alamdv lightbulbs.
for the countdown, if you could get a hold of an old digital watch that had a timer function, you could use that. take the watch band off of it, and attach it to the clay. set the timer for whatever time you need, use a black Sharpie marker to cover over any identifing markings on the watch, and you're good to go.

anytime you can escape doing something digitally, then that's the way to go. try to have as much real in your films as possible.

that might just work thx. by the way the reason i was thinking of digital was that the only time I was going to use it was to lean up against some computer generated text and the mix of real vs comp generated wouldn't look right.
