I don't have much experience dealing with Acrylic RP machining, but
the few pieces I have are very brittle. I'm sure most people that
have purchased vehicles from MakeMyModel will agree that they are
delicate and can break very easily.
Best bet for Heavy Weights are Plastic injection. Second best is
brass/nickelsilver etched sides, cast metal under-carrage and cast
resin roof. Third best would be made completely from casting resin
in several pieces.
I wouldn't even consider Acrylic RP for these cars! If they charge
$10 for an itsy bitsy vehicle, imagine what a long heavy weight car
would cost! Break it and what will you have? The acrylic does not
bend. It breaks!
Just my two cents.
