Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (07)

Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (07)
Fodorflex (aka Beautyflex D).
Japanese 6x6 TLR. Produced around 1955.

A view on the rearside of the removed Lens Board.

I saw something disturbing in the rear lens of the Biokor.
Did look like a big fungus colony :-(

Decided to have a closer look so removed the lightbaffle (see red arrow)
and the rear lens (see green arrow).
I used a rubber tool to unscrew the lens but a lens spanner can also be
used as the lens ring has 2 small slits.
