Took around 6 hours including drying time, but a fun build and final product looks great! just need to get a lens big enough now, thinking a Symmar-s 300 5.6 to start. probably be a few weeks before I can get into a darkroom and do some tests going to give Ilford Direct Positive a go first I think, I heard they discontinued the RC paper though?
