NixieKits.eu is working on an updated Manuela design and this new clock will allow the user to select from a variety of top-view tubes. Jürgen has been working hard on the design and he has a question for the community. One of the options is a set of six SIEMENS red coated nixie tubes. Alternatively, Jürgen can coat much cheaper IN-12 tubes and achieve a similar look. Which option do you prefer:
Option 1 - a SIEMENS factory-coated red tube with a correct #5 for 50 EUR
Option 2 - a NixieKits.eu red coated IN-15 for 15 EUR with an inverted #5
