Looks very nice!  Everything in one box.

Which switching regulator did you use?  I'm about 2/3 of the way through building mine and was considering
using this one: https://power.murata.com/data/power/oki-78sr.pdf
It's supposed to fit in a 7805 foot print.

It should save significant power when running at higher voltages. I did have some noise concerns, however.
I guess the best thing to do is try it both with the 7805 and the Murata switcher and see if I can find any issues.
