Given the current situation and the shear number of sets being crammed into the queue, I'm having trouble believing that it's taken over seven months to ship such a relatively small add on kit.

You'd think so, but GMK Greek Beige Add-on is facing a similar issue.

We ended the GB entry period on November 16, 2019. It's April and we still haven't gotten even close to finishing production.

GMK is overwhelmed, and it has begun to show amidst all this in their delays in responses and production.

Guess i missed the group buying phase.. but since they are still not delivered: can you tell me if any extra sets are being produced to purchase from the vendors (specifically EU)?

Or does anyone not want their order anymore? I'd take 1-2 of these kits. :)

I thought I read that they were supposed to be adding machines and help to ramp up production? We've gone from 4 months on fairly large MOQ sets to almost eight plus months. Looks like 8008 took almost eight months to ship from what I can tell. A simple beige add on in stock colors taking this long seems ridiculous.

They almost need to start limiting the number of sets they accept in any given month, or god forbid we stop cramming more rainbow puke weeb sets into the queue.  ;D

yes, that is what I am thinking.

I may turn out as our luck that this set has been delayed so much  because the WOB/BOW Icon Mod drama maybe changed the mindset of GMK production engineers.

I have received information that GMK has shipped out the set and it has arrived at our European vendor. The set is looking good and does not seem to have the issues that GMK WOB/BOW icond mods had for example.
242611-0242613-1242615-2242617-3242619-4242621-5
1. Just because the sets have arrived does not mean that they will be shipped out immediately, please be patient.
2. Our US and Asian vendor will not received their sets as quickly as the European vendor has.

it looks like GMK has fixed the issue.
I mean it can only be sth small that went wrong. according to them they have better machines now than cherry  used to have and cherry doubleshots were pretty much flawless compared wo what we have seen by GMK in the recent past.
let's hope for the best so that we can still enjoy great GMK sets in the future! in my opinion there is no keycap which comes close.

Great board! Is it a r2 or r1 cypher, I have mine but it's ansi so I'd feel bad putting my og caps, even if I easily can with missing keys.
Btw, my novatouch is complete! All bottom row caps and the caps lock have been replaced and now are all the same color and feel!

Actually, we found outthat sunlight on its own is enough.
But there must not be a window in between. Sunlight must be direct.

Yeah, I found out that my caps are a little bit yellowed. Will look into retrobrighting, but finding peroxide with large enough concentrations is going to be a pita.

Looks great, I'll source some peroxide and try it out in a couple of days when the sun comes back out again. I noticed you put them all in a bowl, do you need to stirr up the caps every once in a while to get them evenly exposed to the sun or will it turn out fine either way?
