Another thanks for including UK ISO.
I’m in for base, blackout, addition and extension.

If the REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT is to be pad-printed, I'd like to suggest moving it to the front of the spacebars so they see less wear and tear.

Also, I'd like to throw in some more support for the idea that two of the three novelty Enter keys could be moved to other keys, like Caps Lock or Shift or Backspace.

I also want to point this out. If I remember correctly, previous iterations had an extra base alpha B. Now the kitting is incomplete. Are we supposed to buy the numpad kit only to get one 1u R4 in the base alpha color?

I don't like the fact that mod-colored tilde and pipe are missing from the base kit. Well, they are present in the Blackout kit, but this is quite expensive for just these two keys. Does not really matter for me, though, since I like Blackout better anyway (Blackout base possibly?).
And I think that R3 icon Ctrl looks bad. I get that you want to have the icon between all the other icons, but the Ctrl icon is just ugly. What about a text R3 Ctrl and those who want icons just use the Caps Lock key? Well, this is what I will do if only the icon Ctrl is available.
Lastly, thank you for including those 1.5u Stealth/Super keys!

Yeah quite a few keys are missing from the base kit imo.

- Dark tilda
- Dark pipe
- Regular mod colored enter and esc
- Extra B
- Black out kit has an extra tab key that is redundant.

Honestly I don't care about any of these other than not having the extra B in the base kit since I'm also getting the black out kit anyways, but the kitting so far is pretty weird.

tbh this.
also if you have text mods on the bottom row the r3 control should be text only too. not a randomly placed icon.

I think a lot of people would prefer the basekit to be $10 more and include those keys instead of saving money on the wrong end.

Where did the F13 go  :(

Agree with what others are saying about how the kitting is weird now. I understand from a cost perspective, but it seems like a few main keys are missing from the base kit (e.g. pipe and tilde)

Agreed. R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn are also missing now; they've been removed since the last update.

In general I like the changes to the kit and the ISO UK/Norde kit.  I still think that the novelties should be a little more subtle.  The entire kit feels really sleek and technical but the Novelties feel a little out of place.  I love the mats and the posters are a great touch.  I also could be tempted by the LEMO cable as it looks superb.  Lastly well done on a really original and very cool RAMA cap.  All in all this is a great set but please just consider the novelties a little further.

This is a nice set, but no numpad in the base hurts since I actually use an 1800.

numpad in base massively increases the price of that kit and there a lot more people that use boards without numpads in this hobby than people that need it.
so having it as an extra kit is imho the best way to do it. Because I certainly don't want to pay for one if I don't ever use it.

That's not how GMK pricing works. For low MOQ sets (250-500), numpad in base adds only about $10, whereas separating it can easily make it a $40 child kit depending on how many keys are included. Separating numpad only really makes sense for high MOQ sets (1000) where the low cost of the base kit can offset the higher price of the child kits like numpad. I think this set can easily hit that MOQ so it makes sense that Virtual is attempting this kit breakdown.

This set needs at least one or two renders in normal lighting because I have a feeling many people are going to underestimate just how bright that grey/blue 7016 looks in the daytime.

I agree with this, the render from werk.technica instagram on his keyboard with a bit of proper lighting shows how the grey can change vastly vs to what is presented in this IC as "stealth". I'm still looking forward to this but at least a render on proper lighting sets realistic expectations for us buyers.
