Finally, after after ordering from 3 sellers (and being fleeced by two) the Nextion 2.8" screen has arrived!

A quick bit of filing to remove impeding plastic and it sits quite nicely

It is taped in for now; going to secure it soon.

I could stick a pro micro or Wemos d1 mini into the battery compartment space, connect to the screen'shot Tx and Rx and start playing, so that's good.

Yeah you're right!

Had to shave off more than I was hoping to accommodate the board, meaning I'll have to rethink how I'm going to be mounting buttons.

There's a strong chance this thing is going to be hot glue city ha ha. Ive got a second case so that one will be the pretty one :-)
