Having designed and built quite a few clock projects over the years, I'm interested in the Nixie Clock kit in Feb/March 2016 EPE.

However the article says the kit is only available from Gless Audio, from March 2015(!) but only gives an email address and Austrailian(?) phone number.

Does anyone know if the kit is still available, and if so, how much it is likely to cost?

I suspect it will be very expensive once postage, VAT and handling charges as added.

Thanks Roger, much appreciated.

According to my calculations, that makes it around £166 for the kit and tubes but without the GPS module, or slightly over £200 with VAT and handling charges.
