[IC] MORE HONEYBOARDS? - MORE COLORS!
« on: Sun, 25 April 2021, 17:08:27 »
  HoneyBoard 60%

Hello & Welcome. - The Group-Buy for "StormTrooper White" HB60% Cerakote was a success!
We have also been busily preparing to ship out the Copper, Bronze & Aluminum spacebars from the GB-R2 last month. A few weeks ago, we had more sample colors for the HB60% sprayed up by our Cerakote partner, and would like to check if there is enough interest to support another Group Buy.

sandwich mount, but so sweet. i've paid up for gasket mount and leaf spring designs but this is a high value, well crafted keeb.

i got a stormtrooper white in the last run and i'm really digging the new colors. i also ordered FR4 and a CF plates from keebcats, just because. (you can download the honeyboard plate file from the mtbkeys website and it needs no adjustments.) really easy to pick up extra pcb's and plates as funds allow so you can change up the feel/sound with new switches and plate materials - no need to get a whole new setup. matt puts out a quality keeb and it doesn't hurt that i'm a sucker for cerakote.

Very nice! That's my favorite color for the HB60 so far. I ordered GMK Iceberg for my HB60 Teal build. Thanks for your support!

Do you know if cold war gray is the same color as the R1 Bauer by any chance?  Dunno, now that I look at it, i think it's lighter than the bauer.  Similar cool gray tone though.

Alot of people who have the board have told us they love the unique sound signature. Check out this sound test! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2-OSJnJ6so

We have new packaging. The keyboard will have its own custom box. A soon as we get the boxes, (in the next couple of days) I will update the IC.

It's definitely lighter than the Bauer.
