Just found this nicely executed replacement of the leatherette on a RB67 Pro-S
Custom RB67 skin

I’ve seen custom leatherettes on some of the 50’s cameras and a Kiev. Would love to see what you found but the link is broke. (at least via my mobile.)
Are they replacement leathers you put on yourself? If so I may have a link to a company that make’s them for several brands and models using all kinds of exotic leathers. I’ll loo look for it and email it to you if you’d like.
Happy New Year Jodys!
I added a link to your site on mine, thought you wouldn’t mind.
I found two places you might find of interest. Both sell custom camera leathers. Though for the RB I think the first one is your best bet, but maybe both will make them. The second link you can get a light seal kit for the RB67 and they have instructions with pics, so check that out for sure. Here are the links:
Here is the link to the light seal replacement tutorial:
I do remember someone was really fancy replacement leathers for a lot of the 50’s box cameras as well. They had it on the news I think, not sure. But they were making the 50’s style box cameras a chiche and expensive designer thing. Maybe South Beach Miami, sounds like something you’d find there though. 😉
Hope that helps, again, Happy Holidays to you and yours.

Happy New Year Jodys!
One place that I found was
They make custom leathers for all types of cameras. They don’t have the RB or the RZ listed but from what I hear they make them. You just have to email them.
There’s another site as well,
They have light seals and a good tutorial on how to install them.
Talk soon and have a great year,
When I receive my Mamiya RB SD I will recover it with Dark Navy Blue Ostrich Skin.
I have recovered many Bronica ERTSi & ETRS cameras in the past although looking forward to my first experience with the RB SD project. I really dislike the Mamiya original covering.
These are my personal cameras, I have recovered several others & resold them just to try something new…
Although as time goes by it is more & more difficult to find cameras in mint condition to continue the process.
