    If you don't care about getting a positive image, I've heard rumors that Rodinal works very, very well with Scala.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Rodinal may well work. Rodinal Special, which is a completely different animal from Rodinal, definitely does work. I use it. It is also known as Studional.

    I'm planning on doing some testing with FX39, as I still have about 20 rolls of Scala.

    Scala is/was the best of a kind.
    I still reversal process B&W neg. film. I heard that a good replacement is the FOMAPAN reversal, I have not tried it yet.

    Scala in Rodinal

    Try Scala @ iso 200, Rodinal 1:25 8.5 min @ 65f (18c). A bit contrasty, but nice rich dark tones. Some examples: Greek Village Festival.

    In London, the big problem was that one professional lab had the rights to process it. When they went under, another lab took it over and I'm not sure if they are still going. Don't think so. I believe Scala was a negative BW film that had been formulated specifically for a reversal process. I was asked a few years ago to test it with a normal BW reversal kit, (I think it was Tetenal), and it worked fine, so if these kits are still available, Scala can still be processed for tranny. Or, I'm sure the formulae are easy to find for the bleach and 2nd development. In normal developer, it was really good film, though I think it may be best to rate it at 100 ISO, though tests will determine it's true (negative) speed.
