Hi, me again! Add another 1.5u super to the 40s kit! Then you cover the proper HHKB style easily, additionally support non windows users a little more.

Ahhhhhhhhh we have a new render and we got ourselves a start date!

Super stoked guys, we're only a couple weeks away! Going to be working on getting some extra goodies to go with the sets!

For everyone's patience here's a render of the set on the Pearl


Only need the Alphas+Novelties kit plus the 40s kit to fit most any 40% board!

Coming soon to Mechkeys.ca on February 12th!


special thanks to Oblotzky for all these gorgeous renders!

1% is a chance! Oblotzky been squeezing these in between his alreay nuts workload of projects so if we got a planck a render it might not be for quite a while!

I could also try learn blender and see what I can do  :D

I’m rooting for this set. I pushed a very similar color scheme years ago, but people didn’t seem to like it that much https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=78174.0

Yessir! Proxies for EU and Asia announcement coming shortly with some fresh renders! Just spacing out announcements a bit to avoid "repost fatigue" and to keep By the Sea fresh in peoples minds!

Well I did my best! Its pretty rough in my opinion

but this is about as close as I could get to showing what BY THE SEA would look like on the Planck!(still learning the Blender ropes!)

Color grading and SA Profile is a bit off but everything in the image is built using just the Alpha/Novelties + 40s kit!

unlikely to happen unfortunately. GB is going to be a pretty small run, so the pricing on a norde/uk kit would be unreasonably high in order to be able to meet MOQ for the few that want them! Maybe in the future if there's enough interest, we'll look into another smaller GB for additional kits to be run!

Just blanks, not for ergodox, combined ergodox blanks/printed responses in our IC were lower than a straight blanks kit

Sorry about that! ISO response was WAYYYY too low to warrant kit creation...would've necessitated running the kits at a huge loss. and there isn't nearly enough wiggle room in the GB here to do so!

I'm so disappointed right now.

The EU proxy price is $275 USD and the CA site is 210 USD for a full base set.

Like what the hell man. I was really hoping to get a set but $285 after shipping is just....

Adds up. With VAT it gets to $250, and you've got to pay bulk shipping from US to EU.

Unless you want to not pay your taxes (and break the law a bit), then I don't see another option.

Well, 210 + 20% tax equals 252, $25 for additional fees elsewhere, maybe the proxy takes a little profit. It's the way it is unless you want to do it illegally.
