Amiga 500 SMD

Hi all,
First I am new to this forum so I want to say hello to all.
Few weeks ago I was searching for some Amiga 500 schematics and PCB layouts and I found something called SMD 500+. It is an SMD version of Amiga 500 board. All components (beside Amiga dedicated components of course) are SMD's. Cool thing is that there is a place for 2 types of Agnus chip. Just read README from github, it'll explain everything.
So I wanted to share this project with you. Link to the project below:
I ordered a PCB in China and all components they had on stock. Now I am looking for donor Amiga 500 board (if someone have this board to sell for reasonable price please contact me via PM). Now I'll try to solder it and see if it will work. Look on board below.

I like the creativity but aren't the D-Sub connectors a bit out of line or am I mising something? I guess you would have to buy connectors of different depths?

Yes, connectors are out of line, but I think I saw in few stores different shaped ones. Will let you know the progress of assembly soon. I am really curious if it'll work.
