It helps to note that all of my SKIDATA+ mockups have been colour corrected to accuracy, and isn't the same as the ones GMK sends out.

You'll get a more accurate idea from my mockups, and you may even notice a slight colour difference between my mockups and the monkey one.

Interesting. The GMK renders I've seen usually show up light and washed out compared to the real deal. Excited to see Skidata in person!

Did some quick 'Shoops. Not the prettiest, but maybe will help give you an idea or two.

This is freaking awesome!!!

Could you do one with the orange mods?

Eh... Mebbe. Didn't do one initially because the mods have black legends, and that to me clashes with the white of the Monkey set. Maybe tonight. Just for you.

Man, I really wish I didn't create those mock-ups. I was going to go for the Infinity ErgoDox and hunt a Monkey set later, but now I dunno what to prioritize between learning a new keyboard or mixing Skidata+.  :-X

Thanks bro,  that'd be awesome :)

Here's a very quick and sloppy mock-up. Sorry. I may do another one with full orange mods on Monday.
Also, I completely forgot to add the blue num pad Enter in the mock-ups above, so I may tweak those later, but I think those already give people a better idea of what to expect. As always, however, remember that GMK renders are never color-accurate in person.

Cool,  thanks bro... Looks good :)

I'm all conflicted.  I would get this set in a heartbeat if it had orange, or beige alphas.

Certainly I'll start to feel the Regret once pics of peoples sets start being posted.

i would have loved beige alphas too, but i went ahead and ordered anyways.

i guess one way to decide would be to look at the pics for the old cherry replica GB set:
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=50292.450

also, remember all the regret that people had for not ordering feng's cyan set! :)

ps.  how did hoff order before me?  mod powers.  :rolleyes:

That's true.  I love the T9 color. Supposedly the same color they use on the Cherry 60th anniversary caps. 
I'll have to decide in the next few minutes.

Hey feng, I know this GB is closed, but I also noticed that there are still some pending invoices and the form was open. So, I figured it wouldn't hurt to fill it out and see if you can add me in last minute (or if you have like overflow orders). If you have time and it doesn't mess up the order, I should be able to pay the invoice within an hour or so of receiving it. If it messes up any of your processing and order management, don't worry about it, I understand and I'll try to get it on the aftermarket! (I did miss the announcement and life of the GB after all!)

Thanks either way feng, and the set looks awesome! Would really love to get my hands on that Monkey key!

Just kidding!  ;)

Just for the record in case anyone is questioning - if there is ever a "perk" to buying anything early (ie, Classifieds posts which only have one item, limited release Group Buys, etc), I always give a grace period of 5-10 minutes for others to express interest before doing so myself.  Missed out on a few nice things because of this, but oh well.
