Thanks for checking this out. The Normie kit isn't set in stone, so if there are suggestions on what to add...drop them in the thread. The kit will for the most part add support for 60/65% boards.

As a lover of green key cap sets, would love to see renders of this. I'm also willing to buy this even though I don't have a 40% board.

Both kits will most likely make it. I hope to have renders soon.

Hello! These are the final kitting pics. Sorry, but ISO won't make it for the Normie Kit. I'm trying to keep that kit at a minimum, so it'll be set at an attractive price. These kits will be submitted to SP for quotes shortly and the GB will begin in just a few short weeks. More details to come. Also, I'll be having renders made and will post them when they're ready. Thanks for following along and let the hype begin!!

The 7u spacebar is on the bottom row. The sculpt is 1-2-3-4-3.

This must be a treeleaf moment because i don't understand.  ISO/7u is a common sighting. Why didn't you include it. Isn't 40%  supposed to come in many layout?
