There is one way to do it, discussed here:

Another way is to use a heat-gun, or a propane torch (blown through a screen to deflect the direct flame). clamp your piece at the bend between pieces of wood, along the edge of a table. Then cover the long piece that sticks out with a piece of metal or wood, leaving a 2cm gap at the bend for the hot air.

Next, pour yourself a big cup of tea, grab a seat, and slowly, evenly, heat up the exposed area around the bend line until the plastic nice is soft enough to bend.

There's a hackerspace in Cairo: http://cairohackerspace.org/

Not sure if they have a laser cutter, but if they do that would be a way to cut the ROV body.

There's also a few other ways to bend the acrylic without a strip heater. More strategies here: http://wiki.openrov.com/index.php/Assembly#Bending_the_Outer_Shell
