So what are the numbers as of now? I just went in on the base set + spacebar kit. Hoping the colors come out the same as the SA set... a weaker green would really bum me out :\

Thanks for setting this up kingnestea!

Got kicked out of this gb from zFrontier after i've paid 3 sets for me and two of my friends.
"According to our third party fraud analysis, there is a high risk of the order, and we are required to cancel your order. " they said, except i've used my paypal for many years and i got my card verified. One of my friend just told me that he joined for one set  and also got kicked out.

Nice play zfrontier, Chosing your site to join this gb is my biggest mistake.

10/02:

The GB for all regions has concluded, the final number of GMK Camping is 365 bases and 220 for spacebars kit.

Thank you all!

The colorchip samples are on the way to GMK for color matching, me and Oblotzky will be verifying the colors.

Further updates will be in this thread or e-mails through region proxies.

Color samples have arrived. Kingnestea will be receiving a copy as well in a few days, we'll discuss if we are going to approve them when he has checked them out himself.

The colors aren't 100% identical, but here are a few reasons why I think that is okay:

- Surface finish for both profiles is different, affecting refraction and therefor how colors come out
- Does a GMK run have to be 100% the same as the original, or can stand on its own feet? IMO they look dope by themselves and very much represent what Camping is.
- If SA was run a second time, SP would be using a different batch of resin and we'd have a slight difference like this as well, so as long as it is within margin, it is fine IMO.

The colors seem close enough that I would be fine with it as is, but if I had to nitpick, the gmk alpha color seems a bit dull / less vibrant than the SA ones. I can notice it most in 3rd picture from the bottom, as well as the side-by-side with the caliper. Its slight enough that it could be the lighting/angle too I suppose. I liked the bright pale cream colors of the original set, so hopefully that will still be the case when I see these in person.

It has to do with the surface finish of GMK too, I had this coming, but I'll jeudge when I get my sample set, should be somewhere next week.

White and green are darker, but I think they look better so this is looking good so far compared to other custom colored GMK sets...

i think it's just because of the different finish on the plastic

Hi all,

I've received my samples today.
Imo, they are 99% identical, and they will never be 100% due to the nature of different surface finish causing different light reflection ratio.
So I'm gonna approve the colors so that they can move forward.
Besides this, Monkey Six the original creator of Camping is working on the banderole design.
I'll share that once he has finalized it, it looks really good. :-*

I'd say Oblotzky's pictures are more accurate irl. ( Of course, he's a German :)))

Seriously fine IMO. The colors looks amazing, they look almost identical and as long as it turns out beautiful I don't care about the color difference,

Minor update,

GMK offered a 2nd round of sampling, we are going to take it and send some SA Camping keys to them for sampling instead of SP color chips.
This will not affect the timeline since we are still 2 months out of production.
Will update you about the result, and we will see which color we are going to take.

I sent 3 keys from the actual SA set to GMK last Thursday, we should have the second round of samples in a few weeks. As kingnestea mentioned we are currently still way ahead of production so this won't affect the schedule.
