[IC] DCS White on Black
« on: Thu, 05 May 2022, 21:32:27 »

DCS White on Black

Why?
It’s white-on-black, there’s no inspiration. Gorton modified legends are cool. ABS DCS feels/sounds nice. The one that is sold on PMK as in stock has some pretty bad kitting. LaserCrafter and I like DCS and WOB. That’s pretty much it.

Kitting



*all spacebars in this kit are concave




Colors
All stock DCS colors:
- White (WFK)
- Black (NN)
- Red (REL)
- Green (VV)
- Blue (BGA)

I basically bought a bunch of color chips from SP and these are the colors I liked best. Here's a photo of what they look like next to some recent sets for comparison (GMK Perestroika, GMK Nuclear Data, and GMK Deep Navy)



Pricing & Vendors
Pricing: Aiming for $115 Basekit in the US, other kits and international pricing TBD.
More
We want this set to be as cheap as possible. (110-120 USD) Based on IC form feedback, we will decide a reasonable MOQ for each of the child kits. Due to SP’s pricing breakdown, it doesn’t really make sense to run this kit at less than 200 MOQ. Please fill out the IC form as this is how we will be able to get the most accurate pricing to begin with. There are lots of other in-stock WOB sets that with would have to run against so getting high MOQs will be difficult. We have gotten our first round of quotes from SP but some kitting adjustments have been made since then, we are currently waiting on our second round of quotes. We will not be taking any sort designer cuts or royalties in hopes of getting this kit made as cheaply as possible.
Vendors:

Board renders
Boards in order: Safa, Cypher, Routemaster









Special thanks

might be better to just run the child kits. while the pricing for WoB on PMK isn't great, i'd assume most people would rather buy from them than waiting for a GB.
edit: just remembered SP hasn't stocked the 7u spacebar and mods for months now, i guess this might be good after all

I agree. Also having to wait prob 1 year to get WoB considering SP is slowing down A LOT when you can get it instock hurts a lot. Only major upgrade is kitting, with Wyse legends being a sidegrade and entirely preferential, but idk if id say that's worth it.

SP 6u mounting points are non-standard so there's no point adding them. I'm also pretty bummed about that because of some 6u HHKBs coming out soon but it is what it is.

I was not aware of that that's really unfortunate. I am excited for 6u stuff too! I'm in for relegendables though. Hoping this runs

The legending and kitting is enough for me to want it, personally.

It would be a good idea to mention that DCS shortbars are all concave. They're not spacebars, they're basically blank Shifts.

Other than that, this would make more sense as a child kit GB because SP continuously stocks DCS WoB on PMK.

Hey, I was the 40s referee. Basically, due to quotes we moved to the same approach as DCS Sol-Dark, where there's guaranteed support in the base kit and extra in a separate kit. Makes sure at least some support makes it through MOQ. Also reduces the price for a fair share of users. I hope that makes sense to you.
40s, with love

Anyone who mentions that it's available in PMK has not seen the horrible kitting that's actually available.

I am so in for this. Please give us a CMYW kit as well.

Not to mention on top of the terrible kitting on PMK, they rarely have all the kits for DCS WoB & BoW in stock at the same time.

DCS WOB in-stocks are also a thing. Checkout https://keyboardtreehouse.com/collections/in-stock/products/dcs-wob-base-kit and https://keyboardtreehouse.com/collections/in-stock/products/dcs-wob-extensions for those who don't want to wait a year.
It's been mentioned before. The kitting alone is worth running it, and Gorton is lit.
