DCS White on BlackIC FORM
Why?
Itís white-on-black, thereís no inspiration. Gorton modified legends are cool. ABS DCS feels/sounds nice. The one that is sold on PMK as in stock has some pretty bad kitting. LaserCrafter and I like DCS and WOB. Thatís pretty much it.

Kitting



*all spacebars in this kit are concave



Colors
All stock DCS colors:
- White (WFK)
- Black (NN)
- Red (REL)
- Green (VV)
- Blue (BGA)

I basically bought a bunch of color chips from SP and these are the colors I liked best. Here's a photo of what they look like next to some recent sets for comparison (GMK Perestroika, GMK Nuclear Data, and GMK Deep Navy)



Pricing & Vendors
Pricing: Aiming for $115 Basekit in the US, other kits and international pricing TBD.MoreWe want this set to be as cheap as possible. (110-120 USD) Based on IC form feedback, we will decide a reasonable MOQ for each of the child kits. Due to SPís pricing breakdown, it doesnít really make sense to run this kit at less than 200 MOQ. Please fill out the IC form as this is how we will be able to get the most accurate pricing to begin with. There are lots of other in-stock WOB sets that with would have to run against so getting high MOQs will be difficult. We have gotten our first round of quotes from SP but some kitting adjustments have been made since then, we are currently waiting on our second round of quotes. We will not be taking any sort designer cuts or royalties in hopes of getting this kit made as cheaply as possible.Vendors:US - ThocKeys
EU - eloquentclicks
SEA - Hex Keyboard
MEA - SandKeys
OCE - allcaps
JP - Basekeys
SK - SwagKeys
CA - ApexKeyboards
CN - zFrontier
UK - Hand Engineering
