Original GSN kit case with tripod, etc?

Hello people, its been a long while since I was here last.
Seems I dont have any rangefinders at the moment but used to have
plenty of them, they are now spread around to members here mostly.
I still like the old GSN/GTN cameras and would like to get some black
GT or GTN for display and use. I have had a couple dozen yashicas but
few black bodies. I see they have even gone down in price since I was
messing with them. I can do the pod, seals, cleaning, rf alignment, etc.
I would like to get some of the original kit cases that had
the tripod, cable release, filters, tele/wide lense and custom case for it all.
I have found one of these but its missing a few items like the acessory viewfinder, maybe a filter. Anyone know how rare the kit case is? I have
only seen 2 before. There is one on Yashica guys website.
Did the Repair forum go away? Cant seem to find it.

I have the case and everything that came with it, including the tripod. They are hard to find. I got my case with lenses, release, tripod and filters, but this was a few years ago and I dont remember what I paid for it. My tripod and camera were stolen in Japan a while ago, so I recently found another tripod on ebay for $26 plus shipping. There is another one listed on ebay right now, I think its at $4 or so, here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...8277&rd=1&rd=1 It is missing the thumbwheel to tighten the tripod to the cameral, but you could get something similar at any hardware store (ie Ace, Home Depot, or Lowes) I'll keep an eye out for you. One thing that does not come with the case kit (i think) is the Auto-Up lens, but those pop up on ebay from time to time.

Thanks electro, so the tripod at least has some value to it. This place wants $49 for the kit with the aux lenses(missing viewfinder), GSN body, tripod, lower camera case with strap, outer hard case, 80b yashica filter and I think it has the cable release too. Been there a while maybe I could get it for less.
