MyGeiger V.3.0 was created by ChrisLX200
Just received the ready-soldered board for this and it looks to be a well made pro device. There is an STL file on Thingiverse to 3D print a case but the design is not great and could use some mods. I printed it out anyway but I should really take the time to modify it because it needs strengthening down the sides (I broke two prints during assembly!) and perhaps a boss or extension to accept an XLR cable socket for an external probe. I did glue a couple of support strips down the inside, a bit crude but they help. Also, it would be better to just get rid of the printed stand-offs and use proper brass ones because the ABS isn't mechanically strong enough to hold a screwthread for very long. Anyway, for now it keep fingers away from high voltage components.

I'm waiting for my SBT-11A probes to turn up, and to connect one of those I also have RH Electronics remote probe driver. That will allow several meters of cable to be between the tube and detector ( tube goes outside, detector remains on my desk),

Still awaiting delivery of tubes... :-(

I also bought this external tube driver with the MyGeiger kit:
