[IC] GMK Skyline - IC Form added
« on: Wed, 08 April 2020, 18:40:11 »
Introducing GMK Skyline



239622-0


Where the idea came from:

Last year I was browsing reddit and stumbled on an amazing picture that inspired the colors and theme of this set. The image below has been my background since that day (July 12th, 2019).

Soon after I realized it would go great with an idea I was throwing around at the time for a colorway and asked the artist if I could use the picture, and they were glad to let me do so. Been waiting a while to release this but finally the day has come!


Theme:

Cars, More specifically Skylines, hence the name.

I plan on doing wheels, turbos, other car parts for the novelties.

I might try and get this art on a deskmat but need to ask permission to use it for actual merchandise first.

239620-1

Thank you u/RaY29rus for this amazing picture and the permission to use it!


Kits:


Edit: Before anyone asks, these are old kit renders and they have changed since these were made. I will be using the same kits as GMK Nightshade.

Base Model:
240236-2


Bolt-On's:
239616-3


Because Racecar:

note: old mod color in render, refer to base for current color. Getting these remade but not updated atm.
239618-4


Auto Salon:

Have ideas in my head, if you look at the pic you can see some of them.

For sure want a turbo compressor housing, wheels, possibly headlights/tail lights (for bottom row to wrap around spacebar) and other ideas I am kicking around.


JDM:

240238-5


Board Renders:

Renders to come trying to get updated GMK Nightshade renders done first and there is a backlog atm.


Colors:

Same Alpha base color as Night Runner and mod color as Nightshade


Additional Info:

Interested. Love the Skyline GT-Rs. Would love to see novelties for the twin turbos, the iconic tail lights, and if possible, the engine! :thumb:

Is there going to be full support for... right-side and left-side driving in the kits?



(don't tell me you don't know what I mean)

I have thought of 3 different routes this could go...

1) ISO kit, least likely.
2) Hiragana legends (mono or sub).
3) Right side legends instead of left like normal GMK.

Not sure which is more accurate but my guess is 2?

2 would really just be saturated alter.

40s kit seems bloated having full accent keys for r3 and both escapes, plus the numpad keys.

that's an amazing 40s kit! Probably pretty pricy with the size of the base kit.  The colors are not for me but kudos for that kitting.  :thumb:

An alternative would be "N2O". I also checked if the NOS was still a registered trademark but its registration is still current.

An R33 based kit?
Yes please.

Also, any chance we can get a right sided mono hiragana kit?
That would be an insta-cop for me, though i'll settle for a mono hiragana kit.

Nice 40's btw, I can feel my wallet cramping up already

I don't have an N9 set but it is much darker, just not as black as CR.

old logo novelty will be huge. same for the LMGT1 novelty.

I like cars. I like keyboards. I see no problem with this. Not a huge fan of the colors, but hey maybe I should stop thinking so monochrome.

e: need them weeb legends tho, it's sorta applicable.

Love the idea, but maybe some brighter colours? The GT-R is not a subtle car, and I feel like this should pop.

Would you consider having text modifiers instead of icon modifiers if GMK doesn't address the recent QC issues?

I'll be buying this for sure, but its hard for me to tell if the legends are more of a red or pink... Have you posted color codes anywhere?

Given the theme, I'd assume red, but as a Subaru guy, my brain can't see it as anything other than Cherry Blossom Red. https://www.grimmspeed.com/grimmspeed-cherry-blossom-paint/

Update:


Working on novelties, unfortunately some of the suggestions are for logos that would require contacting companies to use and I would rather not have to deal with that even if they would be awesome to have.

Designs are done, just working out kitting atm so will update again when that is done.

Any chance for a dark gray mods kit? I don't like the blue, but really dig that red with the dark gray, and I think this set would look great in a uniform gray/red variant.

Edit: Also, maybe the blue in the kits is a tad off? In the inspiration pic it looks distinctly blue, whereas in the kits it has a more purplish hue. Of course, this may be intended, but I think it would look better with the mods more on the bluish side.
