    @terenceslh seems like there is a built in take-up spool, hinting towards 35mm :/ Can't be sure though, only time can tell! Definitely looks like a DIY SLR ;)

    DIY SLR sounds too complicated, maybe a TLR.

    I see frame for the mirror in the upper picture, if slr it is. And I dont think a tlr needs so many springs Just guessing o-o....;;;

    Seeing as Part 4 of picking up the pieces was entirely made up of pictures of SLR's, I'm going with an slr rather than a tlr.

    I'd have thought the mechanics of an SLR too much for plastic parts and diy TLR has been done, so I'm guessing something else. and the 'clue' with all the mirrors/selfies? I bet it has a mirror on the front - unless it IS a SLR :-)

    I see a couple diagonal bits? Could it be a plastic pellicle SLR? Like Canon Pellix? With an adequate lens? We can only hope!

    @spookydirt A plastic SLR could work wine if it was fairly simple, in keeping with the rest of the lomo line it could just have a couple of shutter speeds and a simple fixed aperture lens.

    @biblicalshower I was thinking of the whole 'delay while the mirror was raised before the shutter fires' could be a problem,a timing device would be needed? but now I've heard of pellicle mirrors, I'm not so sure that's an issue...

    I just hope it's in the same price bracket at the Diana/Sardina/Sprocket etc. and not in with the Belair and LC-A+
