Hello all,
Has anyone tried to develop Foma R in Adox Scala chemistry? I understand that you would need to remove the anti-halation layer, but that can be done with home-made ingredients.
I have the Adox Scala Kit and bought every reversal film to see their differences - Scala, Foma R and also Washi R. Now I realize there are no times to develop the Foma and Washi films in that chemistry. From what I understand, Foma and Washi times are equal if developed with the Fomapan Reversal Kit, but I'm not planning to buy it just for two films.

So has anyone tried to do it? Any information would be gladly appreciated.

Thanks

The Fomapan R has a silver based antihalation layer that is removed by the bleach, just like the negative image created by the first developer. The scala kit already has a bleach, no need for extra "home-made ingredients". Basically, your only problem is finding a decent first developer time.
