This looks terrific! Does the PCB support per switch LEDs? Also, what is the height of the front lip of the board? I love the design but I'm worried it could be tiresome on long typing sessions.

Thks frist!
Indeed, each switch has a separate led.
I made a picture of height.To be honest, it's a very suitable height.

Ordered, but definitely interested in additional mid pieces as well.

I think I am set on the color, but is there any way to show the gray version of the housing?

I can't decide between STT and Basic layouts so I would be interested in an option for additional mid-pieces as well. This would make the color choice easier too.

During the IC I didn't really like this board but now I gotta admit, its growing on me. I might pick one up, red base and black middle seems like the way to go for me.

Thank you, so glad you like HB85.
 The matching of red and black is really magical.
And trust me, you will never regret choosing this kit. Because the surface treatment process is really good.

Ok, I'll check it out for you. But rest assured, because I've optimized a lot of the internal structure, so the HB85 isn't heavy. I've just weighed, all aluminum kit weighs 1.98kg;If you change the carbon plate it's a 1.93kg, plus the packing no more than 2.5kg.

To be honest, match the KAM Wraith, I think dark and plain collocation are better than other colours.
Some renders.
All black

Blcak Grey 
   
Gery Black

Hope to help you....

Ok,although I don't think red is suitable for EnjoyPBT Valentine,But I still rendered these pictures.
And II agree with you.I also think silver grey is a good choice.

Pictures of  silver&grey.I think this color looks pure and fresh and more suitable for  EnjoyPBT Valentine.




Renders of red and other colours. :-[



It's a bit unsuitable for EnjoyPBT Valentine...

I must say the design looks absolutely fantastic, one thing making me hesitant to join is that I don't need numpad nor F keys. Do you plan a 60% or 65% of similar design in the future?

That Grey frame w/black mid would look so amazing with Modern Dolch. What a time to be broke  :eek:
It can only be said that gray and black are classics that never change. :p

Half plate is intended to let the center plateless section's switches to flex more (the Alphas) as they rely solely on the PCB for support, giving a feel that many find preferable.

thanks for the reply, i've never seen this before, so you build the outer edges plate mounting the switches but the middle section with pcb mounting the switches.   and the heights stay the same?  wow very interesting, learn something new every day!
