That looks almost like a pro bit of kit

Managed to find a fan and power supply so all parts are now on order. Really looking forward to making this. I would like to fit an on/off switch and presuming it can be wired in serial? Would the power be enough to drive a lit switch or am i better off with a rocker?

If you get a 12v illuminated switch it'll work, though the light will dim as you turn the speed down.
Yeah just break the supply to the PWM through switch.
