Puddsy and hkhawk have already answered but I'm just going to steal baul's work here:
DCS does have much thinner plastic, and whilst this is (incorrectly) believed to be a detriment to quality caps, I have yet to find people who say they hate how it feels and sounds. Think of it as a more 'chirpy' cap, which simultaneously allows you to really feel the switch more. Simple physics, thin cap = less force dampening :D

Have anyone heard of SP ever planning to get the molds done to make these alt. smaller size spacebars eventually convex?

What mount pattern does the Big Ass Enter use?

Is it ISO style, with a vertical stabilizer and a dummy switch mounted to the leg of the key?

Or is it ANSI style, with a horizontal stabilizer and the dummy switch in the 1.5u slot?

Also will be using 7u stab mounting points for the 10u spacebar.

ApexKeyboards is really pushing it with those CAD prices. 
115 USD converts to 150 CAD. 
Even after shipping, ordering from a US vendor ends up being cheaper.

Thanks dvorcal. This set was always going to be a rough sell with the alternatives and the current climate. Talking to vendors right now about extras and won't be pulling the plug on this until the GB runs all the way through.

If you were thinking to yourself, "do I really need another WoB?"

The answer is yes, you do.

ABS good, DCS good, [an]kits good.

Now go buy some everyone.

After much waiting, I finally have the sale numbers for DCS WoB, overall, everything is selling very low. DCS WoB has been in development for nearly 2 years and is comprised of hours upon hours of hard work and patience. It's a unique set that features two distinct and fresh colours that haven't yet been seen in keyset design. And.. it's made with the amazing DCS profile manufactured by Signature Plastics. It'd be an absolute bummer to see this set get cancelled 😦

I'd like to thank everyone who has supported this project so far, I greatly appreciate all of you! However! I dearly ask, If you're a fan of the WoB theme and want to see the set made, please share the DCS WoB GB with others! Friends, family, and/or other keyboard enthusiasts!

I don't pay a lot of attention to group buys anymore, so I'm glad I caught this before the GB period is over.

Will be ordering in the morning, I'm praying this set gets made.

The windowed keys are an especially nice addition - it'll be awesome to finally have my indicator leds light up ^^
