And now let's try it with the latch closed.

I have a question about cleaning this model. I use a brush to dust most fragile items but I'm not sure if that would scratch the visor. I looked into an acrylic case but that costs as much as the model. All ideas welcome. Thank you.

A photographers “puffer/blower” brush would help.

You are welcome Bud! The bristles on puffer/blower brushes are very fine and designed not to scratch delicate optics. Ideal for the job!

For those of you still looking for one of these it now appears to be in stock at Entertainment Earth and available for pre-order again on Amazon.
