AFAIK, Agfa Scala is conventional B&W film sold specifically for the purpose of making B&W transparencies. The price includes processing. Check out Agfa's web site: http://www.agfaphoto.com/products/scala200.html Polaroid makes some 35mm "instant" transparency films for the purpose of making presentations. They develop in a small machine. Kodak makes a Direct Positive Film Developing Outfit for TMax 100 film: see http://www.kodak.com/cluster/global/en/professional/support/techPubs/j87/j87.shtml

There are directions on the web for compounding your own reversal processing solutions, e.g., http://www.mjd.u-net.com/photos/bwtrans.htm and http://user.berlin.de/~christoph.manz/photo/process/slides.txt

Kodak makes a developing kit to use with Tmax 100 (rated at 50iso). I have done tons of this stuff in the past and really had consistently nice results.

You should also try the Kodak TMax reversal kit with the Technical Pan. With some effort, you will get quite nice results...
