Vacuum formed cars. They sucked.
For a long time now I've been planning a small tutorial on how to build and use a inexpensive vacuum former. You can make a lot of things with a former, but I'm going to show you how to copy cars to use as terrain. This idea was the inspiration for my project.
1/2 " MDF board, about 24 in square
A high suction vacuum with the hose( I used a Shark I got from goodwill. Don't laugh, its got some power!)
PVC elbow that fits your flange and your vacuum hose
3/4 " weatherstripping
plastic or acetate
3/4 to 1-1/2 wood for your frames
screws, glue, wingnuts
4 sturdy plastic cups or blocks to use as risers
metal window screen
Plastic for sale signs or other thin polystyrene
