Updated photos of my beauties, including the Type I with the NOS case.

Ew, EW, and EW. Lemme show you what proper custom-made Gui keys look like:

Ew? EW? I would come up with some sort of retort, but the Atari Jaguar's controller is a good enough joke. ;D Although admittedly, they look fabulous.

Affirmative Computer Products 5250 emulator Unicomp PC-122. Note that this is an in-progress restoration. The original case was severely worn and keycaps were yellowed (as they were from their problematic period). I've fitted a new case (as pictured), but I'm temporarily using 3270 PC-style keycaps until I buy a proper 5250 set for it.

Came in yesterday, I got the fifth and final piece for my major 122-key Model M variants puzzle!

A PC-compatible battlecruiser; IBM PS/2 Host Connected Keyboard (P/N 1397003) from 1997 made by IBM UK. It was originally German QWERTZ, but I swapped the alphanumeric and left function-key bank keycaps to something (almost) UK English and to suit my planned layout for this. However, I kept many of the German keys as a key to its origin and to keep as many as the lovely light-blue sub legends as possible!

It's one I've always wanted in my collection; btw qwertz is the best layout.

Except the the fact that \ is an alt-gr key.... I don't miss that from my old computer (ps/s model 30 clone from about 1987). Sure was fun letting other people borrow it in college though :)
