    It is a nice looking set. I’ve been trying to spend less time on the proto[Typist] site as a lot of my money was going that way, but I am mightily tempted by that one

    Feels like I've completed a rite of passage today, building my first kit (YMDK numpad kit)

    Painted up ready for assembly

    And the finished article :grin:

    The only slight downside is I now want an actual keyboard that runs QMK firmware.

    I've just ordered a set of PiPi Gherkin PCBs (and matching top and bottom plates) from JLCPCB and I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for suitable keycaps? If it helps I went wth the Blue silkscreen for all 3 PCBs. There will be no lightling on these.

    No help from me with regards to caps, but... holy crap that is a tiny keyboard! How the hell does anyone do anything productive on a keyboard that small?!

    You need function layers, lots of function layers…

    Yeah, no kidding! I couldn't even cope without a full-sized Home/End cluster, it drove me mad having to use a Fn-key combo...

    I did order a KBDfans D45 to try out an even smaller form factor. It’s being shipped at the moment so I’ll have a play around when I’m home next, but I’m not sure it’s going to work out.

    For my money I think HHKB/60% is about the smallest I want to go.
