I believe there's a mistake in the current render of the base kit -- the third row up from the bottom is labelled R3, but that should be R4.
And R1 with colored Delete & Esc should be R2 apparently.

My bad legends were off. Corrected  :thumb:

You should consider a kit with old school caps lock purse legends solely for the kit title: Be the Old Lady.

Hello everyone,
Here is a kit update with the fixed legends discussed with ideus and konstantin. Also added the ISO IT kit and the Cyrillic sub legends kit ( thanks to nu_types )
Also added the ALT GR keys in the INTL kits.
Added the Scooped annotations on the keys.

Still trying to target the GB for end of february, once i got confirmation i'll announce it.

Man, thank you very much for adding the iso IT set, really appreciate this, I'm super happy!

EDIT: Took me a minute to realize the "ak" layout was colevrak and not...Alaskan or something. Looks great! Didn't realize dvorak was so close to Polish!

Indeed, alignment was off. Corrected.

The—Be the comrade—set would have its own 6.25 space-bar.

Fair enough. 6.25U added

Hi, very nice set!
keycaps <Alt Gr> with white/mono legends are missing

Thing is the Alt Gr keys are used only in INTL layouts. One Thing would be to add 1.5U and 1.25U Mono keys to the INTL kits. I have no strong opinion on this, but as the Rainbow and Mono kits are already filled up i don't feel good to add more keys in there.

On the Italian set, the R3 keycap for the “ç” and the “ò” should also have the “@“ legend on it that you get by pressing AltGr

This is looking great.  Nice to see ePBT stepping up their reverse dye-sub game.  I've been super impressed with xGOK BOW and have been hoping for some light on dark options.

Why choose ePbt? Because the MOQ policy is way more flexible for child kits with less popularity like FR/BE/Norde/dvorak and so on. This set without this compatibility makes no real sense to me as i mainly made it for people not being able to get for example GMK Oblivion / Nord which are in the same tones / theme.

Another reason for this set -> PBT instead of ABS. I don't feel comfortable sinking more money into ABS sets until someone figures out a way to prevent shine.

Also, I know this is probably waaaay too late zekth, so feel free to disregard this, but I do love the way that the classic GMK legends were fixed in KAT Refined, to make them sharper and more legible. If that were possible for this, even in a R2, it would be legit.

read again, it's not about PBT or ABS, it's about that ePBT is producing it. Inifikey has proven that they have mastered reverse dyesub perfectly (e.g. pbt hive).

Read again, he said that the set makes no sense since he made it for people who couldn't get a GMK set, when this isn't the real issue, the real issue is not wanting a GMK set.

Good pricing!

Is the price difference between Rainbow and Mono mods due to reverse dyed?

What are the MoQs?


The Rainbow has three extra caps—and it is cheaper.

Just to make sure I'm not being stupid, the base kit will be compatible with my KBD75 ISO right? I also added Be the pudding for UK caps.

Regarding the price difference i don't know. The MOQ is 200 for the base kit and not MOQ for the child kits

Really great looking kit! :eek:
Any chances there are some base kits left / not distributed / extras?
I ordered the Belgian kit extension (Be The Waffle) and the Mono's but the base kits were sold out when I arrived...
It seems super rare to have a Belgian kit so I'd really appreciate the Base kit to have it full (and maybe "Be The Rainbow" if also possible but please the base kit for a unique Belgian full set)? :D
Thanks in advance! :-*
