retrofit nixie clock

I've always wanted a nixie clock but am new at electronics. I was thinking, couldn't you take a regular clock that uses a 7 digit display and convert that to run nixies? For example, if you want to display an 8 you would have AND logic gates on all the digit leads so when they all are on it activates a relay (or switch thing) that causes complete the circuit from a high voltage souce the nixie tube?

I just built on and If a monkey like me can do it anyone can!! I got the kit as a gift, but I think it's like US$ 59.99 for the complete kit.
