I don't think including UK keys with tertiary legends over mod-colored `~ and \| in the base kit makes sense.

I'll mark my disagreement here. Too many sets with English (UK) support omit the tertiary legends, so it's refreshing to see them present here.


... even if one of them is the ¦ character, which never should have existed (but that's a different pet peeve).

This doesn't change the fact that the mod-colored `~ and \| keys likely see much more use than those UK keys (and ISO keys in general).

Edit: I might be wrong here, and I don't have any data to back it up, but it's something I feel is true just from seeing thousands of photos of keyboards over the years.

Would accent color space bars be interesting to add to this? Mainly interested in red 2.25u and 2.75u.

Sorry if a dumb question -- I couldn't find the answer. Does anyone know how these colors will compare to IvanIvanovich's Dolch set from 2014. I realize legends, profile, and key sizes are different, but I'm wondering specifically of the plastic colors used. I believe the legends here are going to be slightly less bright (??) white, closer to the original. But I wasn't sure if Ivan's run had the original grey colors. Thanks in advance, if anyone knows!  :thumb:

The colors should be the same as Ivan's run. The white should be like the original.

Got a RAL book in and began testing some colors.

Here are some photos: NOTE: compare the edge of the RAL card that is CLOSEST to the badge.


#1


#2


#3

Thus far, it seems to me that the last photo (#3) has the color that comes *closest* to the color of the badge. I have tried finding a color that is just a smidge darker, but even the smallest value variance (+/- 5 units) causes the difference to drift more than it is different now.

I may settle for this very slightly lighter color (I think it's closer than the darker ones), but would welcome any opinions and comments.

Yep, I think the third one comes the closest, despite being a tad brighter. Which RAL color is this, if you don't mind sharing?

I agree that #3 is the best choice but 1# doesn't seem far off either. Ultimately, I trust you as the designer to decide. You have the colors in hand and my screens may be off.

Yea I say do what you think is best all three look great. I think the first one is more of a color match. But I like the lighter one  (#3) also. All three are so close. :) I’m getting my keyboard cerakoted specifically for this set. Pretty excited.

agreed that the first one looks like a nice match, love the slightly deeper colour. We're all looking through different monitors and such so you're obviously in the best position to determine what looks best

Thanks for the input! I will see what is the better fit among these, and see if I can get even closer. It's important to note that this may look different in plastic anyway, and that we may require at least one plastic color sample during production to confirm, but with these at least, we should be able to come close.

My choice for the turquoise accent color is almost certainly going to be the slightly lighter, but close-enough turquoise shown in #3 in the photos above. There is nothing else that comes closer than that.

This set looks so amazing, I've chosen to skip Modern and just wait for this set just curious if there will be any plans on a deskmat to match when this set runs?

How about using “Num” instead of “Num↲Lock” and “Caps” instead of “Caps↲Lock” (stepped) for consistency with “Scroll” and the other legends in the set (all of them are single-line other than these two)?

Nice Hangul kit :thumb:

Alright, cool. And I assume you'd already considered removing the sublegends on the numpad and decided against that too?

Yeah, I wanted to keep the numpad close to regular Cherry, especially as we have icon plus text mods overall.

The Print Scroll Pause is just an aesthetic change for the sake of the top row (inb4 people complain about tilted legends)

I could see the actual plastic of the turquoise chosen to come out slightly different from the renders, but more importantly I hope it'll be as close as we can get to the Dolch PAC badge's turquoise color =)

I already placed an order for a sample. Hoping to get it before mid-July.

After a month or so since the beginning of the interest-check, at this point, I fear we will not be adding any additional kits. We have already sent out a request for quotes.
I've been polling interest for an International kit add-on, but so far I've only seen active interest from about 10-11 people in total.

Unfortunately, it won't be easy to justify running the kit (which would require at least 100 kits). I'd suggest that the group of people that is interested in such a kit to actually gather a committed group who can afford to meet MOQ requirements. This is not the case right now, so this kit (like a fully-fledged 40s kit) is not feasible.

Sad but true looking at other sets.

GMK is not KAT in terms of Moq... but at least we have basic iso in basekit (growling at modo 2)  :)

If you took into account every single previous iteration of Dolch based on GB start times, this would technically be R13  O_o
I think this is the GMK set with the most derivatives
I compiled a list of every Dolch iteration I know, let me know if there's anything I missed.
I know there was an R1 Originative run in there but I'm unsure about the date on that but probably 2017-2018?

Yeah, seems about right?

But since "every single previous iteration of Dolch" isn't OG-style Dolch, this indeed is R5 :) Most Originative-produced Dolch sets, however, were run through direct retail (meaning no GB) sales.

Sorry to bring this up again, but if anyone is interested in the Dolch icon mods (N9/CP), please fill out our form for GMK ThinkCaps and be sure to tick Icon mods.

The reason I ask is because the icon mods are now on the chopping block (too many kits). We will keep them only if there's enough interest.

Here's the link: https://forms.gle/3m31h6g1t6ykKEQD8



Cheers!

PS. RGB mods and Novelties (media keys) may also be of interest.

Wow, awesome render....!

Thanks for sharing here. I think it's good info for anybody who is looking to get Icon Mods to match the same Dolch look that kekkon had organized years ago in his last group-buy.

Let's gooooooooo - very much excited for this.

That Hangul kit will be perfect for the spare N9 Ortho kit I have lying around.
