I do have 1 spare board from the last production I did, I ran out of transformers so it never got finished. So what I will do is transplant the transformer from the power supply and fit it to the new board, then just send the newer board to Mikro..
Success at last. Sorry for the delay but it took some time to actually pick it up at my parents' flat (didn't have a better postal address) and then mount it again:

Perhaps you can spot a few imperfections (I just couldn't get the 4th screw to fit), also the PSU isn't "hole compatible" with the previous one, had to drill another two holes in the poor PSU bracket (and then again, it wasn't a perfect job). But in the end...

Yeah the metal bracket hole locations vary from ST to Falcon or even brands , so it's pretty much impossible to do a "one size fits all" layout. Though I have made the holes in the red boards a fraction larger to try and help with it.
