[GB] GMK Grand Prix - Colors validated!
« on: Fri, 09 October 2020, 02:31:26 »
Hello Geekhack!




This keyset was inspired by Tech3 early 2000s colorway. A 250cc class motorcycle racing team. Olivier Jacque, and Shinya Nakano rode for them that year and they had a fantastic season, culminating with Olivier being crowned the World Champion in 2000. As a motogp fan, I have long wanted to make a set based on this theme.

The colors are based off the team livery that season, primarily cold grey and acid green with orange accents. Acid green is for Olivier Jacque and orange is for Shinya Nakano. I hope other fans of motor sports will enjoy this keyset as much as I have creating it.

I can't believe there's been bought up 1500 extra-base kits? Is it possible to get a final GB number without extras?

I received the colors samples and so far 3 of the 4 colors have been validated! Only the mod color looks too dark compared to what i expected and what the render showed.

Here are the colors:


I'm happy with how the green and the orange pops out, hope you guys too.

If you want i made a comparison with GMK Yuri in this album: https://imgur.com/a/QIWtD70

Thanks for the update! Mods do look a lot darker than the renders, hopefully the new color samples are a bit closer

That's awesome! I'm local to Laguna Seca, so I'm going to have to figure out how to put that on an artisan someday  :))
