People who mind customs should not import.
Or the very least not expect their custom fees to be responsibility of the exporter.

The first ISO Model F went out last week - this one had the 1U+1.75U split right shift, which is built in to all ANSI and ISO F62/F77 keyboards.
So I will have to get Model M horizontal stabiliser and regular right shift key, if I want standard right shift for my ISO F77?

Good point clickclack. Everyone please let me know what you think about the 1.5U Backspace key color (pearl or pebble). I think we should switch to Pebble for that key going forward.

You could also figure out the keyboard matrix with multimeter, make firmware for the matrix and then hook it up to a Teensy++ 2.0 (or any similar controller with enough I/O for full keyboard sized matrix) .
