If that's a 0.85 viewfinder, than that's the exact model I've made with the Leica a la carte configurator about a thousand times, and for less than half the quoted price! Hope you enjoy it.

I'd definitely buy some, as I really enjoyed shooting it. I've been moving to slower and slower films in 35mm lately. Ilford's FP4+ is a great film, but not an exact substitute.
