UPDATE - CLOUDLINE RESOURCES (Assembly/Disassembly Guide, Plate Files):

Cloudline, F13 TKL

"This board's theme was sparked by feedback from my partner Shannie (as well her contributions of cloud and bird illustrations), which helped to steer the board in the direction that resulted in what it is today.

Almost everything about the Cloudline's physical design adheres closely to the overarching theme - from the side-profile structure to the illustrations, every tiny detail has been meticulously considered. The inspiration for this keyboard's unique side-profile comes from the 'silver lining' at the edge of a cloud, while the various engravings aim to represent symbols of optimism and freedom."

Otherwise, a FAQ section couldn't hurt...

Q: Have WK?
A: Yes

Q: When will this project run?
A: Oct 9th, 2021

Q: Vendors?
A: See pins for vendor list.

Q: GB format?
A: Vendors will determine sale format. Region locks are planned, but will be lifted after some time. For questions, please see your pertaining vendor's Discord / website for information.

Q: How many units will there be?
A: 650 total spots.

Q: 'Special' Edition?
A: 20 limited brass spots (sandblasted, UV coated) available exclusively at Cannon keys.

Q: How much will it cost?
A: See your respective vendor for confirmation on these details.

Q: Can I have a spot?
A: I have decided from very early on that I don't want to 'pick and choose' people to get F&F spots, and I don't want people to feel like they need to be doing things to earn brownie points for boards. There is a subjective scale and a gray area between being a supporter, friend, etc. - I don't want to go through the stress of having to pick some people as 'friends' and leaving some people out, so only friends I know IRL, or am working with will be able to pick up a Cloudline. No "simping" as it doesn't increase your RNG.

Q: Can I buy prototypes?
A: No plans right now.

Q: What colors will be avail?
A: All bottoms will be silver. Tops available in silver, blue, red, very dark gray.

Q: When is this shipping?
A: Usual GB lead time applies, current estimate is Q4 2022.

Q: Are certain colors limited?
A: No, all colors for aluminum tops are unlimited.


Approved :thumb:

took the L

All the colors are looking great! Not sure if my boring self is attuned to the Silver/Silver or what.

Long time no update, not wanting to be the one to repeatedly share "no new updates" over the past several months. Cloudline spent most of its time in the manufacturing queue over the past half year (when everyone wants to use the 'high-end' manufacturer I guess that's what happens). At last, we've exited the queue and gone into production last month. The projected completion time for manufacturing is in late August. Fingers crossed that the updates speed up from here!
