Intro & Specs
MoreHello good lads, this is my first keycap IC.
This set was inspired by a keyboard friend of mine whose favorite shade of blue is Prussian Blue. He was looking forward to GMK Prussian Blue GB, but it got indefinitely postponed. To troll him, I started designing something with the same blue and a simple idea came to my mind what about an *insert color here* Alert set? At the same time, I wanted to do something a little different and I didnt like how it looked with the often-used beige as a base, so instead I ultimately chose to use white and grey.

GMK CYL Prussian Alert uses three RAL Design colors:
RAL 230 20 20 Prussian Blue
RAL 000 65 00 Mortar Grey
RAL 000 85 00 Shadow White

Profile:
Cherry Profile Doubleshot ABS (UV Printed Sublegends for Alpha Kit)

If you are interested in being a vendor, want to collaborate or have further suggestions, feel free to contact me on Discord (g_tour).
Im more than happy to have a chat with anyone.


Kitting

Base Kit - Price TBD


Extension Kit - Price TBD


Alpha Kit - Price TBD

Colors are inverted for a more muted look.
You can build two keyboards (Two ANSI or One ANSI/One ISO) when bought with the Base Kit.
The Cyrillic Sublegends will be the same as GMK WoB Red Cyrillic - Thanks Qarmaa for your kindness!

Non-Alert Kit - Price TBD



Base Kit Explained
MoreWhy is there a forced Alert Bar in the Base Kit?
With the set not being beige, I removed the R1 Mono Bar completely and went straight with the Alert one in the Base Kit (See KKB Violet Alert as an example, which has both in the Base Kit but lacks Numpad and Alice support).
This saves cost and should allow the Numpad, Alice, and R5 support to be in the Base Kit while hopefully maintaining a competitive price. Also, most of the people buying an Alert set want the Alert Bar and not having to buy a separate Alert Kit means less cost to them.

Why no 40s support in the Base Kit?
With the set being Alert, it doesnt cater to 40% users so I decided not to include 40s support in the Base Kit. If you want to put this set on a 40% keyboard there is the option to buy the Extension Kit, where I included the basic 4-Key 40s support.

I want to give a huge thanks to Foggytypes for helping me with the kitting, you are awesome.

Note: Prussian Blue is quite literally a crazy color. I spent hours trying to do a photo that would match the in-real-life color and was just not possible (In fact, as you can see, also the color on the RAL Chart does not match Prussian Blue). The IRL color is softer and has a very slight green tint.

baekihyun:
forced alert :cool: I like the look of the inverted cyrillic kit but never a fan of UV printed legends personally--would prefer this with kkb if you're set on having different colored subs

Thevenny:
ah gitur gitur! Nice project!

nu_types:
Why is there a Cyrillic alphas kit? Prussia did not use the Cyrillic alphabet. Its fine if you just really want Cyrillic. Also, by omitting the number row the Cyrillic alpha kit is incomplete.
