Fujica Six

The ICS model of Fujis first medium format camera from the year 1949, taking 6x6 cm pictures on 120 film.

What can I say ? Pleasure and pain ;-)) The camera is actually in perfect condition ( barely used, I guess ), but the shutter blades are sticking sometimes. A typical issue of this camera and a matter of "not being used for decades" as well.

Usually not a big deal to clean the shutter, but this model is special. Couldn't figure out, how to open the lens/shutter unit yet. Searched in the internet, asked repair freaks in so many forums and even at the Fuji repair center. Nobody seems to know, how to open it.
