it looks awesome, and I'll hate to miss it.  If you went through Originative or KeyClack or any established with logistics, I might be in.  But not just as a stand-alone.  Seen too many go off the rails, even with the best of intent.  GLWB!

Vendors don't provide much additional assurance. Keyclack is having serious issues with logistics for current buys.  No manpower, running out of boxes  every week. Massdrop doesn't handle communication well and pairs with supplies that don't deliver.  Hell, even originative hasn't been able to deliver keyboard and co caps for over a year. All you can ask for is a trustworthy individual that will work through the inevitable problems and delays and ultimately deliver what you pay for.

I really like this line of thinking.  Kind of helps me resolve my feelings regarding the M65-A GB's current state.  Thanks, tameone!

All you can ask for is a trustworthy individual that will work through the inevitable problems and delays and ultimately deliver what you pay for.

Depends on the vendor and the situation.  In my experience, MD has had delays, but they've been in general communicated (though perhaps not how people wanted) and you get product.  Same with Keyclack.  He's going through problems, sure.  But he's offered refunds for the delays- that's more than most GB runners can do.  OCo hasn't delivered keyboard and co caps because of unusual problems with GMK and their ability to deliver the colors.  And again, he's offered refunds or movement to other buys (which is what I've done).

If you haven't done logistics and don't have a logistics chain, it's more likely that things can experience problems.  And those problems can be more than the GB runner is even able to work through, easily, if at all.  And that's not a risk I'm personally willing to take, nor am I willing to leave the money on the table for this.  Others can decide how much of a risk they're willing to take.  And that was all I was trying to communicate.  And if more people were honest with themselves, then when the bumps happened, there would be less stress on the GB runner, rather than having people that said it didn't matter, but when the unforeseen happened they're making the GB runner's job harder, not easier.

HHKB is my 100% daily driver layout, so all of my sets, past present and future will support HHKB layout. :)

As a 60% user I sometimes wonder how nice it would be to have an accented (~`) key on top left corner instead of escape key. I know this won't probably happen, but I'm a bit tired of always having escape key there.

Is that a custom grey you're going with for the mods or one they've made already?  The Honeywell grey would look nice I think (though if you haven't seen it in person you should get a sample since it looks so different in pics depending on the lighting).

All the colours are custom, yah. The gray is gonna be a tricky one to balance and get quite right cause it's ever so mildly blue

I can happily announce, CapsUnlocked will be the EU proxy for this set! They've run GMK GMK Mondrian, the ortho GMK kit, as well as the rest of their store, so I trust they will be more than capable of following through well!
More info to come soon, so be on the lookout.

Also an update that isn't really an update. We're still waiting to hear back from GMK about pricing. I believe Oktoberfest is still going on and putting a hold on everything for the time being. Sorry about the delay but there is unfortunately nothing I can do to speed this up.

I have a nicely calibrated IPS monitor and I can see how you might think the second render provided had pale purple mods.  Now that you said something I see it as pale purple haha

It will be either full icon bottom row or full text bottom row, no mix-match. I'll have final results in a couple days when I hear back from GMK!
(Right now it's looking like full text bottom row, simply because I like that aesthetic for this specific set)
