I don't know much about TLRs but from the photos I think you have a winner there. It sure is hard to beat the larger film formats for detail and tonality. That is a very interesting bridge design, I'm thinking a smaller version would be neat if you could do it in private landscaping.
Those are excellent shots and that triplet lens is surprisingly good. The shutter seems to have a nice selection of speeds too...... looks like 1/200 is the fastest but that should be plenty for ISO 200 and slower film. I'm not familiar with the TKK shutter but if it works after more than 50 years it must be pretty well made.
The camera itself appears to be pretty solid. If the quality is as good as it looks, it's a nice camera.

Very impressive -- sort of disproves the notion that a 4 element Tessar is superior on a TLR. I've heard and seen some other good results from others using Wardflex. I've owned two, but sold them both before using them (one was a parts camera). Now I regret it! Maybe I can track one down on eBay.
