I've done it and they build on the bottom of the frame once the top is full. You end up having to destroy the bottom comb if you want to put them back in a medium.

There's a supply catalog out there that has just that. However, the plastic doesn't effectively stop the light the way cardboard does. From what I know, swarms (and hives) want there homes dark. I've got 5 of the carboard type. I use one to haul and freeze my drone comb in. The others I use as swarm traps. They are nice and light but the elements are rough on them. I've got a couple I'll feel lucky if I get another season out of. That's unfortunate as they are the ones that have had hives in that have left plenty of great smells for a swarm. I've gone to making my own as they are less expensive and much more durable.
