Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (04)

Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (04)
Fodorflex (aka Beautyflex D).
Japanese 6x6 TLR. Produced around 1955.

Ok, the leatherette of the Front Panel is removed but i'm facing a dilemma. Go further by removing the Lens Cover or by removing the complete Lens Board ?

I decided to go for the complete Lens Board as this will give me more sight on how the front is constructed.
Depending on what you need to fix on this camera you might go another way as removing the Lens Board has a direct impact on the quality of focus.

Start by removing the 4 screws (see red arrows).
It's a good idea to remove first any remains of the leatherette glue from the screw heads !
