fake nixie tube clock


I was wondering is I could use the same system of using a 7 segment display to wire up a digital clock using el wire since nixie tubes are so much more expensive and limited to small size, or if i should wire it so that it is like a singular l.e.d.  and where could i get smaller metal chicken wire fencing to further increase the nixie tube effect.

Sorry for the bad grammar when I get an idea I tend to lack the proper way to describe it even though I can see it plain as day in my head

Nixie tubes aren't expensive, you just have to know where to look. try ebay, and look for small, uncomplicated models, like the single number kind.
