The logo on the weight can only be seen if the keyboard is turned upside down right? (even if it is PC clear)

Yup, it's on the bottom.

Is the PCB QMK ? And is the Hotswap pcb supporting SMD rgb led as in, can i solder them on myself?

Yes, QMK.
SMD LEDs are pre-soldered on hotswap PCBs. They are not RGB tho.

what colour are the per key lighting leds if they are not RGB?

I would assume just a white light?

On the key logo version, where would the FN key be?  I know it's assignable, but is there a default location?

I couldn't find anything about this after a short search so apologies if this has been asked yet, does the PC version have brass inserts for the screw threads like the acrylic Tofu case? I assume this would improve longevity greatly.

So on the non-hotswap pcb, we can solder SMD RGB LED, which the firmware will support cycling through?

Same here. Still on the edge for this one but RBG would make it an insta-buy.

I've put in my order already, just waiting to get invoiced, but I also would love for the LEDs to be RGB. RGB per key is a game changer for layers. Still very excited though, checking multiple times a day if I've recieved the invoice!

RGB per key would indeed require a board redesign, so don't get your hopes up.

GB started on 2019-09-25 and it's meant to run for two weeks, so that would make the final day of the group buy 2019-10-09 (Wednesday).

The files look correct to me but I don't plan to do prototyping for them. You need to check the files by yourself and take the risks.

It's not top mount. It's gasket sandwich.

Oooh just had an idea for anyone wanting the ISO plate, in the UK or EU. I'd be very happy to organise a mini group buy, so we could get them slightly cheaper. I personally want brass, so I can't order from Lasergist, so I'm looking at UK laser cutting services. I'm going to get one made for myself regardless, but I thought I'd offer everyone the option to maybe get them slightly cheaper if we all pool together :) The website I'm currently looking at is Lasermaster.co.uk. I've sent a quote request in already with the plate file, so I'm waiting to hear how much it'll cost to make just one. If you are interested, they offer various steels, aluminium, copper and brass.

Do you think plastic(PC) is also a possibility?
