I've had a hankering for a CD32 coloured A1200 for a while....

I may have spent too much money!

There is also my A1200 tower which is currently taking up space at @Daedalus's house

Is that white A1200 case going to receive some attention to bring it up to the same ultra whiteness of the keycaps?

It currently looks like a fading celebrity that's had the tooth whitening treatment but not got round to the face-lift :D

Lovely.
I am still waiting for my CD32 case and keycaps. Can/could have paid extra postage to get the case now, but with yellow keys its going to look wrong!
Got a set of normal keys also on order as one case is not too bad, although with new keys it's probably going to then look yellow!

Are keys still able to be ordered? Or has that ship sailed?

I dramatically overpaid for these due to lack of availability. People have been waiting for 4 years for theirs.

You can put together a pretty good Amiga keyboard ordering a set, and then a lot of individual keys from Signature Plastics, if you have a keyboard using Cherry MX switches. Here's my A600. The only key you can't match is "Help". Cost was maybe US$180.
