As I have mentioned in the TA thread, these are actually shopped. The caps are much more yellowed IRL  :-\

Haha... Each board aged a little differently. With the GB we're taking the best of the alphas, best of the mods to achieve this look ^

i prefer this over the shopped version. yellowing imo adds more personality to the board.

I'm the exact opposite. I think the yellowing just detracts from the look.  In terms of historical look though it's great.

I went back and forth on it for a while, but ultimately I'm glad we're sticking with gray for the replicas. Yellowed has its own charm but the gray is ultimately cleaner and pairs better with the mods.

Sigh... I really need to assemble my Lightsaver. This was my plan for it, I love the look of yours.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

you could probably retrobright those keycaps?

thanks for posting this.  confirms my suspicion that the TA set will look awesome on an aluminum board.  if only there were keycaps for the extra ducky media buttons...

WTT my cleaner gray TA replicas that pairs better with the mods for those yellowed ones you have in your pic.   ;D
