[GB] GMK British Racing Green | Last Day To Join GB!

British racing green is an iconic colour from the world of automotive sport. Dating back almost 120 years, the colour has been used by Jaguar, Aston Martin, Mini, Lotus and Bentley. After spending a while playing with colours, I settled on RAL 6005, RAL 1001 and GMK's WS1 as the perfect combination for a balanced set within the theme.

Kitting

Base Kit



Racing Green Kit



Novelty Kit



Exotic Kit



The base kit has been designed to be inclusive, providing full coverage for 7U/6.25u bottom rows as well as complete UK ISO and numpad support. In addition, I have put together an Exotic kit which provides coverage for some favourite 40s layout, as well as that precious Alice-layout second B key.

It is out of desperation that I ask this late in the game, but any chance at a 6u spacebar in that green? I can find a WS1 easy enough, but that custom green is amazing.

...Am I seeing this right and the R2 1.75u backspace never made it into the 40s kit?

Or is it just that the renders were never updated?

Yeah I would also like to know what's up with gamer backaspace.

I had asked in the Discord and was told that R2 1.75 Backspace is in the exotic kit, but that the renders would be updated soon. That was 4 days ago. It's a classic Soontm I guess.

Yeah I had to order the Exotic Kit to fit my keyboard...Wish they would include more 1u modifiers in a base kit, especially since GMK is already so expensive.

Hey! The renders have just been updated to reflect the kitting that was requested from GMK. This includes the same ISO coverage as base kit in the racing green kit! Unfortunately, I seem to have missed the @` key when sending off for a quote. At this late stage, I'll see what I can do and I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on the situation.

The new renders have added 1.75u R2 backspace to the Exotic Kit as well as an ISO R1 `, 2, 3 and |\, an R3 ~# and an R4 |\ to the Racing Green Kit.

This is fantastic news, hopefully you can get the additional @ key added to both as I order both.  Thank you for the update.  Personally I would be prepared to offer a little more to make sure we get the @ keys, without then the set is a little ruined.

So is it only oblo/zambu/switchmod sets that people throw their arms up over no mod tilde and pipe? IMO pretty unattractive to have to buy an $80 kit to get them.

Hi, so I'm really bad at judging size from renders. Is there a 2u Shift in the base set? And if not, is there a 2u from the R4 row in either the novelties or exotic kits? I am trying to figure out which boards I could use this with.

Set looks great btw. Really good color combos.

Damn you're right. I hadn't noticed there's no mod tilde in the base kit. That ruins the symmetry for me. And it makes my decision to pass on this set easier. Too bad as I really like it otherwise.

I simply don't understand how a designer can leave those 2 keys out of the base kit.

This colorway is so timeless, I can't believe we haven't blown past MOQ by now. C'mon geekhack, I need this set in my life!

I was a bit annoyed that the Racing Green set is missing the 5 extra caps needed to make it UK compliant.  Was this an oversight?
I see them in the base kit, but the '@ key is missing still

I bought all sets and the RAMA but I was a bit annoyed that the Racing Green set is missing the 5 extra caps needed to make it UK compliant.  Was this an oversight?

By Rama are you referring to the 2 brass artisan keycaps by monokei?

Sorry, yes that is what I meant.

Yes that is even more annoying, the Base set is actually missing one cap needed for the UK ISO to work.  I hope this at lease is addressed and amended.  Ideally also please add these caps to the green alpha kit as well.

Hey! The renders have just been updated to reflect the kitting that was requested from GMK. This includes the same ISO coverage as base kit in the racing green kit! Unfortunately, I seem to have missed the @` key when sending off for a quote. At this late stage, I'll see what I can do and I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on the situation.

The new renders have added 1.75u R2 backspace to the Exotic Kit as well as an ISO R1 `, 2, 3 and |\, an R3 ~# and an R4 |\ to the Racing Green Kit.

This is fantastic news, hopefully you can get the additional @ key added to both as I order both.  Thank you for the update.  Personally I would be prepared to offer a little more to make sure we get the @ keys, without then the set is a little ruined.

The missing '@ key has been added to the renders of the Base Kit and Racing Green Kit.

Updated renders:

I can now confirm, with hours left, the base kit has officially made MOQ! Still waiting for all vendor numbers so don’t yet have final numbers. Thanks again everyone.
