I like video tutorials versus pictorials or text because it feels so hands-on. At least for me. Anyway, this tutorial has sparked my own interest in building a vacuum mold system for making RC bodies (or other things).
OK, you may spend a little bit to get started but as far as I'm concerned, it will pay for itself in the long run versus paying roughly $20-$25 for a decent Lexan body. I expect my first efforts might be a little rough, but I'm rough on bodies. Having a few extras (that I made myself, no less) would be wonderful. Just think of the possibilities. Maybe start small with a muscle car body for a Micro-T. Then tackle bodies for all kinds of RCs. My wife thinks it may be a bit of an ambitious project. Perhaps. But if making bodies doesn't work out, there are other cool things to make.
I want to try it. How 'bout you? Watch: Weekend Project: Make a Vacuum Former
