Default designing a camera

Ok..
I am one of those people who is always working on some project. Homeade guitar amps. Homeade tripod (made of crutches). Right now I am.working on a pinhole camera made from a cigar box that will shoot 120 film (front off a minolta md 50mm lens, door peephole, flash mount, etc...) I am almost done. I need to know where to put the little red window for the frame counter though. I don't have a paper from a roll of 120 around so I was hoping someone could tell me (it is 645 btw)
I am sorry about the quality of the picture I am posting woith this thread. I just took it with the camera on my blackberry.
Thank you everyone

(Markings on Fujifilm) - From the top of the roll paper, there are 2 lines marking frames for 645....the fist begins 1cm in and goes to about 1.4cm, the second begins about 1.6cm and ends at 2cm.....I'm not sure if all films have both lines though...seems Kodak only had one as I recall.

Is it really a pinhole camera if it has a lens though? =)
