    Well, here is an update for those who may be interested. Got an e-mail from Custom Bellows this morning asking me to pay for the bellows. They are now on the way. Working on the back/GG and some metal pieces and I should be done in about two weeks or so. I'll post some new images when I can.

    Thanks Jim, I've started to work on an 11x14, it's going to be one using on old Kodak for parts. I need to find one Fidelity or the like film holder. I can't afford the S&S right now but I want to get going at something.

    I still have the parts to make a Dorff model type model but this will be quicker until I have a bit more time. Your camera is really nice looking from the photos. I want to go to Joshua Tree get together but I can't get there without spending a bunch of money. My truck needs a new tramissiom so it's parked. I'm probably going to sell it and the trailer, I need an economical way to travel and photograph.

    Curt, thanks. Keep an eye out on the bay and other sites for parts. I got very lucky when I built the 11x14. I found a bellows that fit perfectly and the back from a studio Deardorff that made things a lot faster and easier. Hope to see you in JT. I will unveil the 14x17 there.

    Congratulations! I cannot wait to see the results.

    P.S. It's big!

    It is big! Doesn't look that way now but when the bellows get here and I put them on that is when you see how big it is.

    Jim, this is awesome. I can't wait to see the unveil in JT and the logistics of it all - maybe I can learn something to motivate me to bring my micro format (8x10) around.
