Could you take a photo from the side? I'd like to know if there's a gap between the top of the case and the bottom of the keycaps.

Got pics of the plate? Will the plate color match the case or can we pick a plate color?

Thanks

Wow, really? Hard anodized red 60% buy comes out at the same time as the Penumbra set, and it's not ludicrously expensive? Now I know how Sophie felt when she had to choose between her kids.

The gold color does not look very gold on my screen, more like beige. Is it my screen or is it the color itself?

Another question. :)
Does anyone know where the OP got those grey modifier keys? They look too light to be from WASDKeyboards.
Thanks in advanced. :D

Any ideas of how much shipping to Turkey would cost? Very nice case. I just asked my Poker II if he would want one, and he said yes.

How tall is the edge of the case? Tall enough so there's no visible gap between top of the edge and bottom of the keycaps?

Yes to fix the plate you'll need to solder out the switches first.

To add to his question, does the plate allow spring/stem swapping ?

Great looking case, fantastic job!

Quick questions, I'm currently using a Poker II, which comes already plated, will the case work just fine with the current plate?
Or is the plate you designed specific/proprietary to that case?

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.
