    Just received all my chemicals and such like to begin the journey.
    Very excited about my first development, owe a lot of thanks to the patience of the owner of retrophotographic pointing me in the right direction and not trying to sell me this and that.
    Excellent service help and information try them at :-

    Sounds good, I'm sure you'll have lots of fun.

    Out of interest, what chemicals and stuff did you get?

    Cheers

    Have a great "trip", Dusty. One word of caution, though - don't drink the stop bath. :wink:

    Looking forward to seeing your images in the gallery dustym. :smile:

    I'm glad you found Retro ok to deal with, I must say I didn't. The only three orders I placed the goods delivered were incorrect all of which I returned at my expense. They did send me a Foma pen though :/ JandC get my film orders now.
