This probably belongs in a different forum where more people will see it. I'll move it along...

For information on vacuum forming you might check on books and magazines for RC airplanes. I have seen articles on how to do canopies, blisters and things like that. The plugs can be made out of a lot of materials but I think hardwood like mahogony can be used. It can be carved and would be good for details.
