Vacuum Tube LEDs: Better Radome

A two-legged spider radome base definitely looks better than the four-legged version:

Arduino Pro Mini - NP-BX1 - radome
Arduino Pro Mini – NP-BX1 – radome

The radome base now has a hole punched in its bottom for the data lead, with the two power wires going out the sides as before:

Arduino Pro Mini Battery Holder - SK6812 radome base
Arduino Pro Mini Battery Holder – SK6812 radome base

The alert reader will notice the vertical strut on the far side doesn’t go directly into the center of its base fitting. I attempted a bit of cosmetic repair on the horizontal wire below the Pro Mini and discovered, not at all to my surprise, (re)soldering a connection to a 14 AWG copper wire an inch away from a 3D printed base doesn’t work well at all.

Doesn’t affect the function and, as nobody will ever notice, I’ll leave it be.
