Pete from PV Electronics sent me a link to a really cool kit that he has been working on. It is a GPS nixie clock kit that is offered in IN-8-2 or IN-14 tubes. This is a killer little design and all of the hard work is done for you. All you need to do is assemble it and build a nice enclosure for it (or buy the one pictured below).
All electronic components are provided, except power supply. WWVB / DCF / MSF / GPS receiver not included but available in the PV Electronics store.
Peter Sztojanov Jr. of Steampunk Alchemy shared a link on Facebook yesterday to a few nixie clocks that he's been working on. He did a really great job building them and photographing them and I wanted to share his work here. He has a detailed walkthrough of the construction and a nice gallery to browse through. Go check it out!

Jürgen just sent me these new photos of the alternate enclosure for his Manuela HR nixie clock. The plexiglas in the final product will be a gold color. The plexiglas in the photo is actually a standard mirror finish that has been mocked up in Photoshop. And, for those curious, the tubes are Siemens ZM1182 clear tubes that were manufactured in January 1967.
