Sorry Takomaru for late reply. No prob for mispelling
First of all, you must try and throw first 5-10 papers untill dont find real iso of paper (In my case FB paper 1,5 iso), I was too lazy to preflash and on beginning get veeeeryyyy conrasty images. Also I have fresh Multigrade developer 1+4 which is not good for this papers...My light was three very strong but heavily diffused sources (two Bowens Quads 2400 ws generator fleash light and one Bowens QuadX 3000 ws generator flash light maxed out with Wafers 100x140). Aperture was 5,6 lens, but because of bellows extensions it was 11-11,9. No toning, no Selenium, nothing, except Multigrade Ilford developer, Ilfostop (dont work, its like a magic) and Ilford Rapid Fixer. Best results with fresh developer you will get after 9-10 papers, because of medium strength of developer. My develop time was 3 minutes, the Ilfostop and you get more blacks in fixer?!?!? Woodoo magic I think
