[IC] Filco Měnila odd keycaps in SA
« on: Mon, 22 August 2016, 10:33:55 »
Since some months I'm the beloved owner of a white Filco Minila. Finding keycaps was a mess, because there's some non standard keys on the keyboard, up to and including a 3U spacebar, 2U shift and 1U shift. Only just recently I acquired a Round 5 SA keycap set with an included white 2U shift.


I was wondering if there were more people interested in some odd keys to cover the Filco Minila.

This groupbuy consists of the following keycaps


Both the 1U and 2U shift's will be made in R4 to support most sculpted SA keysets.
A 3U spacebar is also included in this mini drop. Because Signature Plastics doesn't have a 3U convex mold, this will be a concave spacebar.
Colors could be anything, but the font will be Gorton Modified (standard font for SA Signature Plastics keycaps)

Currently thinking about:

WA on RR (White on red)
WA on OAS (White on orange)
NN on WA (Black on white)
WA on BFP (White on blue)
NN on BBQ (Pulse)
WA on VV (Nuclear Data)
TGH on VBV (1976)
WA on NN (White on black)

Again, I have no experience with group buys, so all help is welcome. I am hoping this will turn into a successful groupbuy with lots of satisfied keyboard enthusiasts.

Interested. Something like an RGB type of modifier might be a better approach but how to distribute the colors to the keys I have no idea. My thoughts are havin the shifts alone as accent would a bit out of place due to the right shift. Bit if you push for the shifts alone have a think on adding the arrow keys.

Great news for Minila users.
Please also take R4 1.75u control,  R4 1u delete and R4 1u menu/app into consideration. These keys are also barely included in common kits.

WA on GPA(white on grey) may look comfortable with most other colorways I think.

Interested. Having a RGB would be a neat idea like kokokoy said.

Definitely interested. But is there really not a 3u convex space bar? I was sure I had one. I have DSA on my minila right now which I'm certain is concave, but I thought I had a standard convex SA space bar as well.

Is there a possibility that this GB will happen?
2U shift key, 3U space bar is rare.

Rare, but exists.  SP blanks work in a pinch but some sets (waiting on carbon) have dedicated kits for minila.
I would kill for a 3U cherry profile spacebar.  The 2U convex spaces I got in my GMK Mondrian set are NICE
