There have been so many times that you have done it. You buy your model truck, put it together and then you are ready for the next one. It is always fun, you must admit, but what can you do to liven this up. It is so easy and fun the first several times that you do this but eventually it can get quite old and you really don't want to loose interest in your hobby. What can you do to try something a little bit out of the ordinary? How about trying to draw out your own changes that you would like to try on your model truck? The best way to visualize these changes is draw them. A sketch such as this can help you to see all the different variations that would be possible before you begin to try them out. This is a sure fire way to save yourself the trouble of messing up a part that would not work out.

If you want to try this out then the first thing you should do is to gather your materials. You will need to grab a couple pencils and a few pieces of paper as well. Now you can begin to draw out your car the way you will want it to look once it is fully assembled. One way to do this is to use the pictures from the box. You can also use the ones that are in the directions as well. Once you have this sketch you will be able to begin. After you start drawing you can then add pictures in the margins of the different modifications that you would like to try out. Once you have these extra pictures you can then begin to see what sort of changes you would like to make. Make sure you do several for each part you would like to modify. Try to be creative and draw several different parts so that you will have plenty of leeway in the design process.

Another thing that you will want to do is to try drawing your model truck from several different angles. This will help to showcase the modifications that you intend to apply so you can best tell how they will fit into the overall truck design. Another consideration is that you can also try experimenting with your paint scheme on paper just as well as you can with the parts that you are modifying. To do this you will need to use some colored pencils so that you can see all the possible paint schemes that you might want to use. You might also want to try some pin striping or even flames and see what sort of change they will make.

After you have picked all the different changes that you are wanting to try out of your model truck then go ahead and draw the final design out on paper while making sure that you also apply the chosen paint scheme as well. This will let you know exactly how the model truck will look once it is finished. It you do not do this then your chosen modification could possibly not fit. You now have the concept down to be able to try out your chosen modifications without having to do it on your model and chancing it not working. Why not try it out and see how it works for you?
