Does anyone know where to get a kit or plans for building a field camera that fo lds up? Similar to the Bender kits but not a monorail. Thanks

I'm not a proponent of doing this yourself, but if the urge is just too much to suppress, take a look at the construction article in the Nov./ Dec. 1996 issue of ViewCamera. When you're done reading that, read the very next article on testing your ground glass alignment. If you expect to get sharp results from a home-built camera, you will need to know how to test ground glass/film plane alignment.
