Hey,

Here is my board it is BS keyboard from Full Size IBM Model M made to SSK with Lotus Elise Theme (Chrome Orange)
I owned this car back in 2011 and I sold it because my lifestyle just simply change (I have a baby boy), then our family need a bigger car. I asked one of the Thai keyboard artist by the name 6664 to made me a memorandum of the fun I had with the little Elise SC 2011. It is utilized the original bucking spring from IBM Model M and hand-made the whole chassis of the keyboard to made-it-mine.

What do you guy think? :D :D

I gotta ask: is this the same craftsman that made the Model M Ninja keyboard you showed us at viewtopic.php?f=62&t=19126&p=414794?

hmm, this falls under "ATBGE" for me. looks like you really went over the top in terms of quality of work, and style execution! Style wise its not my thing, but hey! its yours, congrats I'm a wee bit jelly you can do custom cases like that! and those colors do look quite good!

Would love to see a modern low profile beamspring case with conservative styling :D

Quite a dazzling keyboard, but no substitute for the car!

Very nicely executed. Great adaptation of the Lotus's style and colors.

"Low profile" and "beamspring" in the same sentence :lol:

On a more serious note, OP, did your craftsman start from scratch to build this?

You could always build it into the desk so that it is flush!

Very nice indeed! I've only seen a Lotus Elise once in a parking lot, and other than the exotic look, the second thing you notice is just how "space saving" of a car it is! I'm glad that you got to experience the car and that you now have an awesome keyboard to commemorate it!
