I ordered the DIY kit via eBay for 7,86 Euro (about 10,16 US Dollar) back in January and the kit finally arrived here on Friday. I already had a similar kit for an 35mm camera a few years ago which was a serious pain in the ass but as I really wanted a TLR camera I decided to risk it – and it was worth it!
The manual I got wasn’t the best and left me confused most of the time but luckily there are a couple of other manuals and even assembly videos online to help out – especially the tutorial guide by lofico is brilliant! It took me around three hours to put the whole camera together because due to a manufacturing error a hole was missing in one of the side panels and it took a while for me to figure that out. You need a bit of patience especially while installing the shutter but it’s really not too difficult.
Now I am just really excited to see what pictures the Recesky is going to produce (:
