I'm also still interested.

There was a post by Kailh on /r/mechanicalkeyboards about a week ago saying to contact them about switches, but still haven't heard anything about keycaps. The rep that was in that thread had rather rudimentary English skills so communication was difficult at best.

the keycap samples as the attachment

Yes, but I don't know which kind.
That's because Kaihua made two of them, Choc (closer to ML) and Choc mini.
Each kind will have its variations (at least blue and red alike).

Choc: 3mm travel | 50g | actuation at 1.5mm | total height 8mm | lifespan 70 mi
Choc mini: 2.4 mm travel | 50g | actuation at 1.2mm | total height 5.85mm | lifespan 25 mi

Also apeared at Computex: http://imgur.com/a/JqiAq

I am waiting for my Kailh switch too. I have ordered some red / brown sample from Bella by Email / Skype / Paypal.
She was very serious and fast.

Now I need too order a custom plate for my project. I wonder if you have some file for the plate that I can use. Because I have never used this kind of software.

Got my switches on order last night! Can't wait to work out this split PCB and use them in it!

My current keyboard is a scissor switch type and i found this topic while searching to see what mechanical keyboard is most similar to the one i have.  These look very interesting.
 I also saw a post at TPU about a wireless keyboard that uses the same (?) switches https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/drevo-introduces-low-profile-wireless-vrangr-keyboard.238071/#post-3743213
