Ok, so how is this type of "plastic" compared to lexan/ploycarbonate then? Does it have the same strength?

Softer can be good as they maybe will flex more than lexan, making it more impact resistant.

Another question: does the Vivak comes with a protection film same as the lexan does? Then it is not necessary to cover the whole body before painting.

Have you tried to vacuum form anything with the protection film on? Or is it impossible to get it off after heating and forming the Vivak sheet?

Yes i know, i always paint on the inside, so just a little mask around the edges on the body will be enough, and a plastic bag or something to cover it all up
