    And Brownie #3 arrived. It's a pre-flash model, and it's a Canadian made baby! By "Canadian Kodak Company LTD."

    Rich,

    Those are some way cool Hawkeyes. Reminds me of old school hot rods. Hmmmm.... Candy Apple Red, and some pinstripes. Oh yeah...

    I just finished refurbishing a BHF for a Christmas present. I've done a couple in the past, but took extra care with this one. I also did the mini-flash that came with it. It was pretty rough inside but cleaned up like new. The body had an extraordinary amount of mold and grunge inside so I took out the shutter plate so I could give it a good scrub. Had never desoldered the flash contacts before but it, too, was pretty easy. Resolder job looks and works like new. I finished up the gift by replacing the flashbulbs, batteries and film in the original box and tucked an extra 620 spool inside. Should be a nice surprise.

I flipped the lens in this one too...
    Beautiful cleanup.

    I checked mine and it looks like I could load 120 film and use a 120 spool as the take up spool. I have to get some 120 film.
