    ColorBlind, I can make kits for any cameras, but the customer needs to provide measurements (in a number of ways, see the links).

    For those who were unsure if the material is suitable for their needs, I made free samples available (with free shipping in US). See

    Just got my kit in the mail, came with spray glue, a cd and printed instructions, bellows material and a paper kit to practice and make sure it fits before gluing the real thing together. Very nice kit! Thanks Sorin! I will let you all know how I fare putting it together but it looks pretty easy to do after watching the video and reading the instructions...

    For those who have their own materials and a means to print the patterns (with a 13" wide printer you can print the patterns for a camera up to 8x10)I'm offering now a "Design" only service for $29 for any format. You get PDFs with patterns for a paper model (to try the design with ordinary paper) as well as the patterns for the stiffeners and the cover/liner.

    Wow, that looks good. I'm getting a Seneca 5x7 soon, hope to be able to do the same with it as you did with this one. That's impressive work.

    I just got mine finished today as well, looks great. I will post a photo of the completed camera tomorrow after the silicone dries where I mounted the bellows to the rear standard. The camera will actually be up for sale here in the classifieds tomorrow so keep an eye out. It is beautiful...

    Thanks Tim! I'm really proud/pleased.

    I stripped the camera, reglued everything (the rails were a mess, actually everything was glued to the wrong piece). I stripped the old (chippy, crappy) finish and used a gel stain and rub in oil.

    Really fun project and I'm enjoying using the camera very much. Good luck!
