Hey Doug, the dimensions for a holder that should fit your 207/7 are as follows: 15cm long (not including the darkside) by 10cm wide. (150mm x 100mm). The pull on the darksides may vary in length. You can also verify this by measuring the outside dimensions of your ground glass holder frame.

Things to look out for: The 9x12 holders of which I'm familiar are designed to hold glass plates (dry plates). If you want to use film, you will want to get plate holders that have the film sheath inserts. On some holders this would be a thin plate that holds the film and slips into the plate holder. Some versions of film sheaths are a real pain to load in the dark. I find the Kodak holders with the drop down frame to be a breeze to load and unload in the dark. But, of course they are not the only make/style, and any holder of the correct size should fit you camera.
My primary cameras are both the Zeiss Maximar 207/7 and the Voigtländer Avus 9x12. The 9x12 Kodak plate holders I mentioned previous are compatible with both cameras. See picture attached. I purchased these through ebay over a period of time. Months. These are recognized by their silver pull tab at the top, which on mine releases the holding frame for film. They are somewhat different in design from the normal film sheath. When buying this type of holder, or any other type of holder, you might want to have the seller determine if they have the frame or a film sheath insert. I have ordered a number of holders where the sellers could not determine it's status, and I ended up getting holders of the wrong size or without the film sheaths. I found that locating the film sheaths separately is a much bigger challenge than finding good 9x12 holders with film sheaths. Another plate holder of the correct dimension is the Zeiss 665/7 (second picture added).
I hope this helps. and BTW, I think you're really going to enjoy your 9x12.
