I'm pretty keen on making an rc body for my monster truck and I sort of know where to start like making you're own vacuum former but I'm wondering if there are any other simplier ways to form a body.I'm a complete newbie at this so any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated,thanks.

You got it in one, a vacum former is the easiest way to make one off shells unless you have access to a lexan/poly forming machines.

There are lots of how too's if you search the net and youtube

There is no easy way around it.

You have to make a plug and drill 0.5mm holes in it to allow the air to suck the lexan onto the plug.

Make sure you put holes in all the corners of the plug, anywhere there is an indent in the plug you must have a hole (Like windows, head lights and bumpers). Good luck with it, it's not all that hard.

Keep posting as you go along and keep asking questions as you go.

I will try to help you if you keep in touch on the forum.

Cheers, Brett.
