preparing for kits

A project log for Fixietube - Fake Nixie Tube displays

30ml jam jars turned into beautiful LED displays - nixietube like looking without the higher voltage fuzz

I've revisited the base board and the LED board today. 

This will be all through hole to sell it as a kit. I know there are smd kits for everything, but this felt more right. Along with a 3D printed socket and one of the jam jars I've recently acquired, this will make one digit.

Do the resistors and C1 have solderable pads? It doesn't look like solder mask is removed at the pads. I might be interested in a kit, would you also have the option to include the wire mesh etc?

  Are you sure? yes | no

I played around with the footprints, they have no stop mask on the other side. The wire mesh needs to be in there, definitely :)
