The ISO kit is basically a UK ISO kit.

Dasher & Dancer, in time for Christmas. How perfect. (Even if all we get is a bill for Christmas, haha!)

I'm super hyped for these sets and I will probably get both, but shouldn't the key with ~ and # in the iso kit be the other way around? IIRC the # is the normal output and the ~ is the shifted output of that key.

Well, that key is row 3 so you can orient it whichever way you like!

Right, should've thought of that before I commented. Anyway, I'm still eagerly waiting for this to drop!

If MassDrop wants to offer a bunch of international kits, I would have no objections. But I don't have time to make 3D renders for them.

It's Christmas, hence we are use to paying out huge sums this time of year. It's traditional so best stick to normal conventions.

So no international kit? I thought that was a standard by now for SA profile keycaps ...

Take a look at the NORDE kit of the Godspeed drop.
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/godspeed-c ... keycap-set

It almost hit MOQ50 with just 25 required even though it covered just one of the two color schemes.

Maybe if 50 people pledged to buy a Norde kit on the MassDrop poll conversation thread, they might be persuaded.

Does Massdrop do the kit design?

In some ways they do, yes.

Why do SA Nordic kits supply a row 2 "Z" key when the existing row 4 "Z" key in every base set can be used for this?

In case anyone is wondering, here's what the Dasher terminal connected to and the father of the colour scheme:

FWIW, that Ergodox kit is a perfect substitute for blank Planck and Preonic kit in grid version. Hint: blank SA R2 = blank SA R4.

To zslane: add a single 2u spacebar, then it will be fully compatible with all version of Planck & Preonic.
