Here's the kit as delivered:

4 Digit Electronic Clock Kit - parts

This build failed entirely because of my clumsiness. I didn't get the LED display seated properly on the circuit board and my cack handed attempt to desolder and reseat it resulted in delamination of the circult board. The board was damaged beyond repair.

I did manage recover a few parts, including the LED display. The remains languish in my parts box awaiting further desoldering.
