Emily basic frame is ready

I decided to named my J66 WA 4x5 rangefolder "Emily".
The basic frame is ready
Accept lens in focal length 90mm and shorter, I hope to mount a 47mm lens to see how it looks like.
She will be a fixed lens WA 4x5, share the same back system with Byron, but need a new designed helical focus system.
Keep working on it. on her.

You know what? Comparing with the single plastic lens that J66 uses as taking lens, its rangefinder made in much better quality, really don't know what was Polaroid thinking when designing J66.
