Milestag rocket launcher...continued

I've been doing further work on my Milestag rocket launcher. I've been doing further work on the control box.
Here is the CAD drawing of what I want:
I modelled the box on one I found on ebay, then printed out 1:1 scale drawings of the holes for each side. Using spray mount I fixed these to the box. This allows me to centre the holes precisely, especially when I use my optical centre punch:
I used a stepped drill for the cable holes:
I designed a custom LCD display mount with allows me some leeway when I cut a rectangular hole for it in the box. It has a flange to hide rough edges and a recess to allow a 2mm protective cover:
Here is a test assembly of the box:
On the other side you can see the curved mounting plates to allow me fix it to the launcher barrel:
