Model Truck Prototypes Leading Innovation

Aug 13, 2008
Model makers have been making model trucks for many years. Model building has seen its good days as well as its bad. People who enjoy building them come from every side of the tracks that can be imagined as well as from all over the world. It doesn't matter if you search from Russia to Australia or from Hawaii to Scotland you will find model builders all over the world. As a hobby it helps you to develop your creativity. It is also firm proof that love of a particular pastime can transcend all language barriers.

So, how does a person that loves building models work that love into their everyday life? One way is to fill a niche that many people never give much thought to. The automotive process would simply not be quite what it is now without model builders. trucks all began life as an idea which then was transferred to paper. After this it had to be brought to life and who better to do so than modellers?

In order to properly visualize a prototype truck model makers will use the design that were created to build a clay model of the truck. The clay model can then come in handy by providing a solid object that can reflect any changes that the designers wish to make. Believe it or not, some of the drive behind the industry was created by concepts in modeling before they were ever considered a viable prototype.

There are many well known model makers that have been building clay model trucks for years by using a variety of different parts from different vehicles in order to get the look that they were wanting. From time to time it is based on consumer requests and at others it is based on the designer's whim. Such variant thinking as this is what can lead to original ideas and innovation. You would be surprised how simple it is to be working on a model and think "this sure would look great on a truck!"

If you ever do have an idea like this and you feel that it could be a very important innovation then you should take some pictures of the changes you have made. Next you should sit down and list your ideas about this improvement. You can hand write them but typing them would be much better for clarity. You can then send your idea into the automotive manufacturer that you want to approach and see what they say about it. Who knows, your face could be famous in a short time. If you think that you might have something that could make you a great deal of money then you should apply for a patent before you just give it away. It might be a bit of a bore but it can be worth it in the long run.

If you get your patent before you choose who to send it to you can then send it to several different ones and see who offers you the most money. Also, if you do spread your idea you can stand a better chance of someone picking up on it. Before you know it you could be the next one of the long lost Dodge brothers.
