Been a bit - just checking in. This kit looks spectacular, would love to see it produced.
Color looks amazing.
I'm reducing gmk buys until they actually deliver haha. But this is the one I'll still buy in to.
This is looking really great
Love the dark blue.
Looking forward to this one :)

Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm going to start reaching out to some North American vendors and once that's done I should be able to get this going soon ;D

Would love to pair this with an Aegis Navy Constellation if you're still considering SA Deep Navy. Any news there?

Haha. Was thinking same thing. Would look real good. Dunno about SA though. Really hope it's GMK first.

Yeah, right?! Should be a great pairing!

I'm primarily interested in SA although I know I'm in the minority. Just remembering that ttom openly thought aloud about an SA run.

Yeah. I mean if this delivers and looks great and photographs well (for all that reddit eye candy), I'm sure it'll end up arriving in different profiles eventually.

On the subject of SA:

I ordered some colour chips a couple weeks ago to get an idea of stock colours that could work. I'm attaching a picture of them below though my camera isn't very colour accurate. I think I'd rather pursue this in GMK first and then after I could consider my options with SA (though I'd still like to do this). My initial thoughts are WFK/WA on BBI.



Disclaimer: these colours are much warmer in the pictures than in reality

Hmm. Could just be the photo. But I expected it to be darker. Like close to black. Realise a lot of it is renders but I feel like the blue of Kat Atlantis was more deep navy than those.

 And excuse my naivety but are those slight shades of ws1? Cause ws1 was one of the reasons I found this set interesting. To match mods and alphas with other ws1 sets.

Iíll make sure it is just right for the GMK run, and will soon be ordering a colour chip for this purpose. Those are SP ABS chips, and the whites are just the three closest shades of white to WS1 that I saw when previewing the colours on their web page, so I ordered them. Also, the picture isnít very colour accurate and makes the chips looks a whole lot warmer than they do in reality.

For GMK Iíll be doing a lot of colour sampling to make sure I have the perfect shade matching the renders so no need to worry about that, and the WS1 will stay as it is.

Count me out until the SA run, just because that's the profile I'm using these days. WFK on BBI sounds perfect, and I would instantly cop it.

The GMK run will be a hit, though - best of luck!

I think as dark as possible for the navy is where this set will really shine.
Also are icon mods already decided upon? Are text+icons or just text possible if there's interest?

I think so too - I didnít mean to give any wrong ideas with those colour chips. They were the darkest blue offerings SP had for SA so thatís what I ordered. As I said, Iíll stay true to the renders for GMK, and will do extensive colour matching if needed to make sure itís the exact colour I intended it to be.

Icon mods wonít going to be changing.

Hi everyone, hope you're all staying safe. Now that my other current project is pretty much in vendor hands I'll be working on this more.

First off, I've updated the addition kit to include basic ortho support:



I've also found a North American vendor who will be announced soon, and we've reached out for quotes with these current kits. I've ordered a Pantone chip too but this may have to wait with my proxy in America for the time being given how we just went into full lockdown yesterday. No GB date as of yet but expect late Q2 / early Q3.

In the meantime, I added some stunning renders by Abec on his new board, the Adťlie to the main post.

Super sleek!

Have you thought about adding the dark navy blue on white Alpha keys (like the Enter and Esc keys)?

The ability to have that combination would look sick in my opinion.

Good morning everyone - have some updates today:

Firstly, I'm very happy to announce that this set will run on CannonKeys this May!

Pricing: will update this once I have pricing from all my proxies.

Artisans: have reached out to a prominent artisan maker in the community, will show what we come up with here when I can.

Deskmat: working with someone with some very good past work for this + packaging for the set.

Pantone chip: ordered 2 day shipping to my proxy in NA, but that's now been delayed to around 3-4 weeks. Will update here once I get my hands on it.

Also have some more renders on the way from Abec  :thumb:

Thanks for the update! Is it possible to have this ship out in the old gmk tray or has everything switched to the new square foam box? I'm not a huge fan of the new box.

This'll be in the new packaging. Don't get your hopes up for more sets in the old trays.

Sounds good. This might be my first gmk set, and I wanted a nice plastic tray to keep the caps in. Looking forward to this!

Really love this color set! Is it too late to request a white alpha kit similar to the enter key with it? I think it would really complement nicely with the dark exterior.

Understood. BUT :) would have liked the white alphas with dark / navy letters. We often see BoW but not much navy blue on white...

GMK Rudy looked somewhat like this but with what I believe is a lighter blue . It may not be the same dark navy, but someone out there ordered Rudy and Dark alphas and would sell just the light alphas...
