Please consider editing this so that you don't have to open each image individually. I'm also having an error where even when I do click through, I can't see the images properly apart from the Maja board render. I'd also consider adding a picture showing the three RAL colors with labels and a reference picture of the park itself. Regardless, GLWIC.

I won't be opening any of the images but I imagine that the actual keyset reflects the quality of the formatting.

Renders could use work, kits arenít labeled. Full reverse dye sub set for EPBT not the smartest choice imo. Glwic nonetheless.  :thumb:

Otherwise it's a awesome set! glwic!

This was what, over a year ago now? Not a single set with heavy usage of reverse dyesub has shipped yet, nobody is sure of quality.

Iím not that familiar with ePBT sets at the moment. Are these still PBT, or will they be ABS? I assume itís Cherry profile - is that right?

Love the idea of this set as it combines 2 of my favorite things.. keyboards and Acadia.  I feel like the novelties are a little lacking with the one cliff face being repeated a lot.  Would love to see some more iconic Acadia images such as the bass harbor light house, the shape of mount desert island, a lobster bouy, the Cadillac mountain summit marker (probably difficult to pull off on a novelty, but would likely make a really nice metal artisan)

Love the colors and the idea of this set.  The set doesn't feel complete, though, without a novelty with the shape of MDI on it.  Maybe one of Bass Harbor light, a classic Bates Cairn or maybe even the blue trail markers? This way there wouldn't be so many repeated designs in the novelty set. Also, an artisan cap with the Cadillac summit marker would be awesome and an instant buy.

Can't wait  for this to go live :)

Looks pretty good to me, nice work!

One interesting note, RAL 6009 appears to be a green color but I don't see any green in the renders. Is it supposed to be the base keycap color (looks more like a charcoal on my screen)?

Thanks for the comment, the RAL 6009 is definitely green, this is the first im hearing of this, I will go back and check the colormatching, but it looks green on my screen, kitting renders are the best representation of the colors if this helps.

While I understand how much fun it is to change materials of a board in KRK to look cool, doing things like rendering a polycarb Whimsy feels iffy. I would suggest using one of the standard Whimsy materials that ImperfectLink provided in KRK to avoid further Whimsy confusion.

Mostly renders they need a lot more work. They look like they are rendered in a not well lit environment. Also, consider not making a full 5-side dye sub set (next time) I know that you've stated that "I have been able to see a few samples of the new reverse dye sub molds. (Not in person) The caps look great. I assure you as KBDfans has told me, reverse dye sub will not be a factor in the quality of the set.", but how can you assure that? You haven't even seen it in person. You don't have samples on hand. I'm not sure I can trust you with that.

 Have no interest in trying to approximate color from renders, thatís hard. Take the plastic chips of RAL 5009, 6009 and 1015 youíve ordered-not the paper from the RAL deck, this is geekhack not Reddit-and post those in dim light, bright fluorescent light, and sunlight, and post that. Then we can see the color according to the reference standard youíve chosen. My guess is that green looks dark like your renders in dim fluorescent light, but more green in sunlight. Another alternative is to take your chosen RAL colors and create a diagram comparing those to sets people know-SA nuclear data, camping, the future GMK Taiga / Hunt, etc.

If the reverse dye sub molds look good, Iíd figure the manufacturer wants to show off the pictures here on geekhack?
