I think you're expected to stack the nav keys like

Home
PgUp
PgDn
End

I'm not entirely sure why there's a R2 Home key tho, is the idea here Del/Home/PgUp/PgDn with no End?

Alpha + base is enough to fill 2 board, just curious, if I have a full size keyboard, what the other could be, from what I see, back space is not sufficient

Most likely an HHKB-like layout with 7u space, R2 1.5u backspace, split backspace and split right shift 👍

This one is growing on me with the renders in different lighting.  Wish there was a light pink 2.25 Enter.

Are there any renders of this on a plum Iron165 or a rose gold (anodized aluminum) board?

Should have some more renders coming but I don't think any of them will be of the plum/rose gold color (plum color could be a cool combo). I'll follow up with the render artist ✌️

Hey, just wanna know if I bought base + alpha, can I build 2 sets for 1 wk and 1 wkl layout? I can see a extra 'Tab' in base kit for this purpose but I didn't find any extra normal 'backspace'.

Think the best you could do is use this to do a split backspace, replacing the larger /| with something else. Of course then you'll need a board that supports it as well. The alternative would be to just add on the symbol mods and only replace the backspace key (or all of them).

Zeelobby is correct, would have to go split backspace and use the R2 1.5u backspace, the easiest second layout would be an HHKB-esque one 🙏

Thanks for the answer! it will be dope if we can have an extra backspace or a novelty key if that doesn't cost too much.
Anyway, great topic, I'm in.

I think that's just TKC too, so it could be way higher than that already.

Are the MOQ individual for each kit, or is it and MOQ for the GB in general for all kits to be produced?

Hey all, waiting to hear back if TKCs fulfillment center can mail out the stickers to the first 50 buyers for me (would be a much smoother operation). If thats not possible Ill mail them out personally as originally planned. Expect an update when they get mailed out 👌✨

Currently have slow internet where I am (traveling) so just to confirm, because its hard to verify on my iPhone, Hiragana + Icon Mods will cover a 65%, e.g. Think65 or 60% Rama M60, right?

A bit sad that the light pink modifiers are not going to be available for TKL layouts--reserved for the numpad and 40% sizes.   Otherwise an overall super cool set.

Hey... 40's already have bonus desk space, why do they get bonus pink modifiers?!

I like this kit, I want this kit, I have it in my cart, it's ready for check out - but holy shnikies is it a heavy price tag.

Unfortunately not since we don't have the illustrator file for the legends, the kit render was some photoshop magic.

It's because there's no R1, so the magenta starts on R2 and the R3 enters get the pink 😅
