Is everything still on track with this GB? What with everything going on I would have expected delays

Timeline was updated to reflect delays - https://redd.it/flgn48

UPDATE- Delayed shipping ... :(

Hello everyone,
Some sad news ahead ...
I have just heard back from Durock and can confirm that we will not be shipping in early May. Production has been severely delayed, partly due to lack of workers available and also lack of materials in the supply chain due to Covid-19. I appreciate your understanding with this, and I will keep you informed every step of the way and let you all know as soon as I know more. As it stands Durock have not given me a knew ETA and have only said that the previous estimation will not be met.
Thank you all, George

This was unfortunately to be expected. Thanks for the update!

Delays are totally understandable. I sent you an email a few days back, but could I change my shipping address? (I'm moving soon). Be safe everyone.

To be fair, I think H1 was in the pipeline way earlier than Ghost. Plus silent switches need the extra dampening parts.

PrimeKB has a Silent Alpacas preorder coming up soon, for which they'll place the order on July 6, with the switches tentatively expected to arrive on September (but you know, global pandemic). I wonder if Durock will consolidate the manufacturing of those switches with these ones, seeing that they use the same parts (but different color and springs).

Now all the custom swithces from January are still not proceeded since the production capacity. The new moulds and production lines will be ready within this month. The lead time will be getting better on July. It is a big step for us this year with some large projects. We are trying our best to increase our production capacity and service. We know the procedure on custom switches is slowly so far, but it will be better. We thanks for the partners like you, thanks for your patience, understanding and support.
And do hope to cooperate closely together for greater achievement.
I already communicated with our management and and production manager on your status yesterday.
We will try our best to get the Ghost switch proceeded before the end of this month.
Will keep you posted once the sample is available.
 

The above is copied verbatim from my most recent email from Durock on June 14th. Unfortunately it isnt much of an update, but it is something.

Now the bottom housing is ready.
Enclosed the photos for your review.
The top housing is under color matching, will be finished in a couple of days.
Then the complete ghost switch sample will be available for your confirmation.

Above direct quote from Durock, at 2am this morning (11hrs ago)!

Samples are on their way to me. For now see above for pictures from Durock. I will take  higher quality pictures when I receive the samples. IT IS HAPPENING!

Great news. Thanks for running this. I sent you an email (for a shipping address change) a couple weeks ago to the email address from which you sent the group buy live announcement, as well as a PM here on GH a week ago. Could you please confirm? Thanks

Like the samples switch housing - but is the stem different as intended ?

When comparing to your shops websites renders this looks quite different.

Not a big problem for me (won‘t see it with caps  ;)) , just wanted to ask
