Well, I’ve had to make peace with the colours that I have on there - I’m too busy with work and my printer is too busy with the work that I send him to get him to do loads of test runs trying to find the perfect grey! It does seem to depend on the lighting as to how right it looks.
I’ll revisit these at some point - Doofus I know you’re after a set. I’m waiting to find out if I’m going back to Doctor Who again which tends to give me more space/time for experimenting on side projects, so if I do, I’ll try to get these done.
I’m really, really happy with how they look when matched with proper “block” LEDS as per the ABGD lights:
Nicely diffused with a seamless finish (no holes). It still really struggles to diffuse the surface mount LEDs (I swear you could use the green power light as a torch) but not bad.
The GIF above reminds me why I like the VII so much - the little screen may not be the most practial, but the way it’s recessed into the body and lit as a slide really makes it feel much more interesting and real.
