GMK Red Alert

Thanks to the following people for approving this Group Buy:

* Seoulcialite (the last runner of DCS Red Alert)
* Ragnorock (runner of white-on-red Red Alert back in 2012)
* Photekq (runner of GMK Red Alert in 2015)
* Warren (runner of GMK Classic Red)
I have additionally reached out to sixty and uranium, the first runners of Red Alert, and will update this IC when (if, unfortunately...) they write back.

Red Alert has run various times throughout the years. It first ran during 2011 as OTD Red Alert thanks to sixty and uranium, who worked extremely hard with SP to perfect their custom legends almost a decade ago.
Five years after the last group buy - and with approval from many previous RA runners - I have revived this classic colorway for a new wave of keyboard enthusiasts. The updated base kit has been paired with odes to OTD Red Alert and vintage Cherry keysets, including two Ramas approved by Cherry.
