Remember, when you're vacuum forming you are going to need a lot of heat to ensure you get the plastic down into the details of the pattern. I dunno, but I wouldn't be surprised if a foam plug crushed a bit under the pressure and heat. The plastic would also take on the surface texture of the foam....if it worked.

many moons ago i used a hard-foa 'plug' to mould some parts on a 2ft square vacume former. i wouldnt want to use it in a production run. the foam actually compressed after a couplle of goes.
