I need to take mine apart and take some pictures, but my visor does go up and down.

I think some of the earlier kits used some sort of rail system cast in resin.I wouldn't have too much problem fabbing something out of styrene, but if there's a pre-exsisting way that would be better.

Cool! Glad that will work for you. Yeah, its a pretty simple thing to do. I over thought that for a couple of years and then it hit me like a truck one day. Thanks for posting that Alex.
