Lipca Flexora

OK, I got my hands on quite nice Lipca Flexora - clean glass, cosmetic condition very good and all speeds above 1/2 are usable (it sounds ok). The only issue that the "top" is missing. Do you think it is a DIY job? I would gladly take a cheap donor, but this model does not seem to be very popular on ebay.

Oh that's a bummer... Looks like a cool camera.
I wonder if you can live with a WLF from another camera?
There are lots of dead Yashicamats and Rolleicords out there.
Their hoods remove easily and function independently.
You'll have to be a bit handy with retrofitting..... or maybe that is too funky.

Cords and Yashicas will be too big, this one is about Lubitel size... But maybe I will manage to fit something.

Quite crude/dirty DIY, but function is restored (also replaced the mirror which was broken)...

get some black thin cardboard from a craft store and make a hood. fortunately you have the focusing screen and parts of the hood to attach the cardboard hood to.

I finally tested this old TLR and the lens (Enna Ennagon) is not that bad. Not a Rolleiflex, will spend more time on the shelf, but still...
