I have a 1/8 scale car which uses bodies made in "Lexan" +- 0.5mm. I am
thinking in starting to make my own "car
For that I know I have to buy (maybe make is better) a vacuform machine. It
doesn't have to be much fancy so I
think I might be able to make one (any tips on best ways to make one?).
But before making the machine I must first check if I can find the Lexan
material an check it's price.
From my searchs (Google) I found out that Lexan is made by General Electrics,
from US but because I am from
Portugal I will end up paying a lot more in shipping expenses.
What I am asking your help on is to know what really is Lexan? Is it a unique
material? Or I can find similar
material, with same characteristics and usable in "home vacuforming"? Where can
I find it, preferably in Portugal or
other European country?
Thanks in advance for your help.
