    Here you go. Just modded my (unused) Hassie polaroid back to attach to a 2x3 Century.

    It almost covers all of the 3x4 instant film:

    The bar at the bottom clearly is from the opening of the 2x3 pack film holder that I used to make the Franken holder. I bet it could be shaved off to make a more complete coverage :-)

    I don't know, but even if it did, it'd only have an opening for 6x7. I want the maximum (3x4).

    Does the film plane match up well?
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    Well, actually no, it gets set back a good 7 mm or so. Therefore, you just need to put a mark on the rails where the front standard needs to be set back when using the Frankenroid back :-) Or get an extra set of stoppers. Cool thing is, the rangefinder works perfectly since you're not changing the lens. Just need to find that exact right spot where the front standard should be.

    In order to do so I used a DIY focusing panel I made out of acrylic material I got at an arts supply store for $1.50, and a piece from an empty cartridge of a 3x4 fuji instant film.

    What modifications to the Hasselblad 405 back were needed to adapt it to the Century Graphic? What lens are you using with it?

    Sorry for the very late reply.

    Here's what I did:

    1) From the 405 back, I unscrewed one plate on the lens side of the back. Lot's of screws (like a dozen), whole plate comes off, there's a smaller plate underneath that also needs to come unscrewed, and that's it. You have a Polaroid back with a huge openening on the lens side.

    2) From the pack film holder, I unhinged the "lid" part and just kept the side that attaches to the camera.

    3) Take an aluminum sheet, make an opening for 3x4, attach to the pack film holder part, then drill holes to attach it to the 405 back
