Thinking about it, some properly gold keycap to reflect the protecting gold film used in the missions on the landers would be exciting.

Keep those eyes peeled! More will be revealed in the coming days, but I have something planned  :thumb:

Would be really nice if anyone could make a color comparison with MODO, it looks very similar in color.
This is absolutely a must have and can't wait for the GB!

This has grown on me the more times I look at it.  I have not went in on quite a few of the recent GMK sets as I just think they are rinse and repeating.  Weirdly (given the colour pallet) I think this is quite unique.  Interested to see what the RAMA cap will be.  I am tempted, especially with UK ISO catered for.
I started typing on a Sinclair Spectrum 'human flesh' keyboard in 1980 and I never stopped.

The desk mats look high quality. Good stitching, it seems. I know some folks like the current design, but are you still considering another design, one less dramatic and such? I know some like this one so to each their own, no offense meant.

Yeah loving the deskmat in person too! It feels very nice.
Also, yes, I am in the process of designing a less...tragic deskmat design. I should have it done by someone in a few days to a week. As I said previously it will follow the same design but be of the moons surface with a lander, etc.
Thanks for your interest :)

In my opinion I donít think the scene should be too complex, I think less is more imo. Canít wait to see the revised design

I find the way you split the set into Modules very clever: On the one hand, looking at the Command Module, the majority of ANSI users won't have to pay the "ISO tax" :thumb:. On the other hand, with ISO and numpad in the Telemetry Module combined, this extra kit is much more likely to reach MOQ, as opposed to a lonely ISO kit. AFAIK we are talking MOQ=100 here for the extra kit! Clever, this should work out fine, I am curious how this develops. (In my short time here at geekhack, I have not encountered this kind of split before.)

Oh, and can't wait to see the RAMA renders!!

Hey thanks for such positive feedback on the set! And yes, I didnít want to completely forget about the lonely iSO users out there ;) (just kidding)

As for the RAMA cap, a design has been met and renders are here, just wanting to get revised renders with glow in the dark infill, stay tuned for that.

Hey all, just wanted to keep you all in the loop with what's happening.
I decided to make a few tweaks here and there taking into account the feedback from you guys.

Changes:
  • Added a 'B' key to the base kit to support Alice users
  • Revised the Saturn V novelty, removing the flame so it's thicker and less like a pen
Updates:
  • Final RAMA cap renders should come in soon!
  • A second deskmat design is also in the works
  • Arranging some collabs to take place
  • Finalising GB date

If you have any questions/queries/suggestions, feel free to leave them below. I'll take my best shot at answering them.

Im new to customs and planning to build my first own with the e8.5 GB.
I have no problem converting to the general ANSI layout but i do need the Ł, Ų, š keys unfortunately as im german.
Is there any known work around for that?

(Helmet RAMA - Metal with glow in the dark infill)

The first RAMA idea/design is in, I've hopefully got another design in the works so stay tuned for that.
Let me know your thoughts/feedback on this one.

imo I actually prefer it without the visor extended, but thatís just me. Iíd 100% buy the current design with glow in the dark, do you know how much each cap would cost?
