[GB] Moon TKL v2

(1/72) > >>

I will be kickstarting this classic again as my past two projects, TaiChi and Nebula ver.S, are completed. 
There will be new improvements based on the feedback I have received.

General information and price of the keyboard. Prices excludes shipping and PayPal fees:

GB will start now and end 07 Nov 2020 (or when 100 units are ordered). Limited to 100 orders based on raffle results.
Delivery - given the uncertainty and how screwed up the world is, I set a buffer period of 6 - 8 months after initial down payment to the manufacturer (targeted 15 Nov 2020).

General FAQ:
1. Pricing of the keyboard has been updated accordingly to the quote from the manufacturer. Since anodization is done by a new setup in-house (same as Nebula) it is costlier.
2. Non-transferring of spots. I will not entertain any transfer of spots due to the rampant flipping of spots in this hobby.
3. 50/100 slots will be given automatically to past supporters of my projects as well as my friends. The remaining 50 will be via raffling.
4. I will be updating all progress here and in my discord.
5. Feel free to contact me in discord.

Do note that shipping to USA will be approximately USD 60, Canada around USD 80. Rest of Asia / World will be advised.
I will invoice the exact shipping cost when I am ready for shipment.
Do note this is just a ballpark amount. Prices will be updated when it is ready to be shipped.

Billing and invoicing:
1. I am collecting in SGD as PayPal imposed an additional surcharge of 3% for checking out payments to US bank accounts (offshore for me)..
