[IC] GMK British Racing Green | GB LIVE NOW
« on: Thu, 06 August 2020, 09:29:55 »


GB THREAD IS NOW LIVE


Running from June 1–June 30, 2021.

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.

Mood Board





Kitting


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.

This is awesome, love british racing green! What are the accent colors/legends? They probably work best, but I'm curious why you didn't go with the traditional yellow accent.

I motion that we remove ANSI from the base in this set. It's only regionally relevant and we don't need to cater for that niche in the base. We could save a quid or two doing so so that's well worth it. Please move ANSI to the international kit.

Haha a bit controversial but I'm not saying no!

Love this. Only thing is the white is a tad much in my view, more green the better!

Love the green, but I'm a bit unsure of the beige. I'd prefer white legends on the mods, but the beige accent is ok.

In kitting, alphas are shown as green, but render show them as white. Can you clarify on this?

To clarify, alphas are WS2 with RAL 6005 legends. Mods are RAL 6005 with RAL 1001 legends. Hope this clears it up!

Absolute genius, I love this set already. I may be bias because there is a TR3 in my garage that is being restored with British Racing Green paint and tan interior, but yeah. Nonetheless, I am in.

So for accents I went for aesthetics > theming. The accent is RAL 1001. For me it does evoke feelings of cream leather seats, and I feel it does fit in pretty nicely in a way where yellow may be overpowering.

To clarify, alphas are WS2 with RAL 6005 legends. Mods are RAL 6005 with RAL 1001 legends. Hope this clears it up!

Would you consider CP1 or a 3u bar in one of the kits? I'd love to have a 3u bar for this and currently Hineybush is doing just that with his current Spacekeys GB. But if you're gonna keep the WS2 perhaps I'll hold off on purchasing from Hiney for now. Actually, now that I think of it, if this was WS1 I could purchase the bar kit from GMK Minimal R2.
