    sure :)
    prods should be here in a week im told.
    for now, I do have some new side plate *bling*

    these next two knobs will need to be purchased on ebay or where ever you can find them. they will be more to make then just buy and you get the real part.
    the knob on the left is from a zorki 1 camera look at the last pic and make sure you get the correct one. the numbers go clockwise, and the pins are located between 5&10 and 25&30. there are a couple variations where the pins are in different locations, as well as a variation on some that the n umbers are counter clockwise and some times both variations on one. these you can find shipped under $60 and there are several on ebay right now.

    the second knob belongs to a kodak 35 rf . these are a little more tricky to find but generally I can find them around $20-$30 plus shipping. there is also a black knob variant that is the same. for the prop, you will take the bottom skirt from the zorki 1 and place it under the kodak. see the above pics for reference.

    coming in the next couple weeks will be the turn table pully disc, these are very accurate and much less than what the turn table manufacturer is selling them for.

    Love the side plate bling! :love
    Can I sign up for one each (left side, right side)? I need the blank disks too.
    Is the turn table pully disks supposed to have the notch in them? Mine don't.

    I had these laying around from past projects.

    I see a different knob on the Kodak 35 rf that doesn't have the knurling on it, instead it's ribbed. Is it known if the knurled is the correct version?

    yes . there are several pics that show this. this is a cropped pic before all the other stuff was added and before they painted everything black. fyi the black version and silver version are the same knob from the kodak 35 rf.

    But, alas, no Kodak 35 RFs with the propper knurled winding knob to be found. There was one vintage Navy version a few days ago for $99 but it's gone now - I hope someone isn't using that one for this.

    trooper - any chance that you might make resin copies of these Kodak 35 RF knobs if they continue to be scarce?

    already did :)
    these do pop up, they seem to come in waves, might go weeks and see nothing then there is several out there.
    be sure your looking at all auctions/classifieds . ive seen them on etsy and auction houses for cheap.
    i will include black resin castings for the plate run coming up so folks have them and can swap them out when they source the real part.
    the zorki is pretty easy to find and there is enough being listed for follks to get them for their builds.

    I’ve been searching for the Kodak 35 RF for quite some time. Really hard to come by the right model. It appears the year you want to focus on is right around 1940/1941. The zork was easy. Snagged one off eBay for about $20.

    If anyone is still looking for a Zorki1 *, I have an extra with Jerry who said he’s happy to ship it out.
    It would be $35 shipped.

    PM me or reply if you want it.

    just a quick clarification on the 1st post on the bottom. maybe im just over thinking this, but I don't want any kind of misunderstanding :)
    here it is-

    this morning when I got up I felt the urge to highlight this last part, to make sure that every one knows and understands the options im giving.
    you do not have to buy the new parts at this time, please simply pm me and tell me you want your current paid order to be shipped, I will send you an invoice for the shipping only.

    please, if you have any questions pm me


    here are 3 options I can do since these two runs came in so close to each other.

    1. I can prepare to ship your current paid order now

    2, I can hold on shipping everything until I have the pullies

    3, or I can ship everything I have now and ship the pullies when they come in
    this way you can start putting it together and go pew pew pew !!! gaaagagagga !

    I've been using this stuff for more than 6 years after after getting the tip from a professional model maker.

    Don't let the title fool you.
    It works on a variety of materials like styrene, aluminum, ABS etc.
    Fill in the holes by spreading around a drop or two
    use AC accelorator
    sand
    repeat as needed

    Squadron Green is harder than white so I use a tiny amount of white so as not to oversand the surrounding area.

    Rubber-toughened AC
