So while I was in Austria for an installation the 3mm diffuse LEDs came in and I had to solder one of the left over boards together. The blue LEDs might need a diffuser as well andI still want them to turn off at night. Actually I could just fix that right now in software.

That looks much better! Are you going to steampunk the plastic somehow?

I kind of like the 60ies / 70ies vibe. What would you do to steampunk it?

  Are you sure? yes | no

I guess paint with Brass Scorpion over Chaos Black base, and then drybrush with Skullcrusher Brass...
