Is there any way you can get a hold of some UK ISO 105 key white keycaps for my Filco?

Would be nice if the keyboard company would get any keycap sets at all (don't forget ANSI).
Switches tried so far
Cherry MX Red Blue Black Clear
ALPS White Black (fake)Blue
Montereys
ACER
White Black
Futaba
Buckling Sprin

Well saying that the Filco Yellow Edition keycaps look really nice but I bet they're only ANSI layout :(

I think it's more of a willingness of Diatec to sell key cap sets, not Keyboard Co.'s willingness to carry them.  That said the white keys are pretty nice.  They mask the shininess.  That, and I like the dark gray-on-cream motif they have going on.

I just wish that WASD had a "Filco Cream" color for an engraved set.

Keycaps for a filco can come from various suppliers, doesn't have to be from Filco themselves does it?

I think I probably will but I'd rather wait until he gets the new colours in (Hope he gets a nice sky blue in so I can get white keys with blue modifiers)

I don't see us having any separate White sets in the near future. Printed or no.
