Making from styrene sheet the buckets:
The HPI Trueno comes also with a lexan piece with buckets. I cut the glass out for the LED.
So you could see at the pic above i cutted the frame out with a knife but i was not satisfied and make a
cad drawing of it and cutted it out with a waterjet. (CNC)
Painted the buckets with Tamiya TS paint.
