    Default Body Master List - Polycarbonate

    The plan here is to have a master directory for all Polycarbonate or "Lexan Bodies".
    We'll start adding and encourage you to add to the list. Simply post a reply here stating the body you'd like added and when we do we'll erase your post and give you credit at the bottom!

    Be patient we're just getting started, trying to arrange reference images to go with the listings.
    Listed by manufacturer in alphabetical order.

    What tha heck is Polycarbonate?

    Polycarbonates are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, moulded, and thermoformed; as such, these plastics are very widely used in the modern chemical industry. Their interesting features (temperature resistance, impact resistance and optical properties) position them between commodity plastics and engineering plastics.

    Lexan (LEXAN) is a brand name for polycarbonate sheet in thicknesses from 0.75 mm (0.03 in) to 12 mm (0.48 in) and resin in a wide range of grades. Lexan is similar to polymethyl methacrylate (Plexiglas/Lucite/Perspex) and is commonly described as acrylic in appearance, but is far more durable, often to the point of being described as "bulletproof", depending on the thickness of the sample and the type of weapon used.

    Thanks Wikipedia!

    Default Updates Body Master Lists

    Sorry it's been so long, I'm back into the resources again.
    Initially I was posting lists of the manufacturers bodies within a thread...Ends up far to messy with limited control over design and layout.

    If you click this link you can get a sneek peek at what we're putting together. (keep in mind it' snot complete)
    Hoping this will make a nice resource when searching for a body for that next project.

    The Lexan Body List

    We're planning the same idea for ABS/Hardbodies, Scale Accessories...

    If any of you like putting lists together and searching out products we'd appreciate the help.
    If you have a list or resource you think would be a nice addition simply reply to this thread.
    Your content will get added and we'll give you credit for your help.
