Model Truck Clubs And Their Benefits

Aug 13, 2008
Do you love to build model trucks? Is it something that you feel very passionate about as a hobby? There is a way that you can build on your love of the hobby. Think about joining a model truck club. While it doesn't exactly which kind of model truck you collect there will be a club that will more than suit your needs. With this many choices out there how could you possibly pick one to go with? The very first thing to figure out is exactly what you are looking for in a club.

If it is a die cast model club that you wish to join then you should consider joining one that has certain types of collections. These "Mint" collections can offer you a selection of the different trucks you are looking for. Usually these are based on a common factor such as whomever manufactured the original vehicle or the particular year range of that truck. Clubs such as these will normally sell each vehicle at a set price and then tack on shipping. At times they will offer a freebie of sorts as a way to get you to choose their particular club.

If putting out a little bit of money does not bother you at all and there is a certain model of truck that you want then this sort of club can be up your alley. There will be a set shipment at a certain time and you will already know what the cost will be. One of the drawbacks is that collections such as these rarely gain in value. As a collection that is purely for enjoyment they are normally only worth face value. Also you can face the chance of having to accept shipments that you would rather not have. If you do not have them all due to sending unwanted ones back then your collection's value will be worth even less.

There are also clubs out there for those of us who love to build models as well. With many of these clubs out there a world of choices are available. Many of them offer a free membership and can also include other options as well. There are also opportunities to speak with many of the club members so that you can get all the hints and tips that you will ever need. This will help you to greatly improve your skills. As a great source of info on where to get rare paint colors and hard to find models these clubs are usually very interesting. It can also make a great way to meet many new people from around the world.

While some of these clubs offer free memberships others may offer some pay per membership services as well. Closely resembling an "of the month" club these may offer a different model truck each month. They will provide the build kit for you and you will then have to pick up paints seperately. You may have to do a little bit of research but you can eventually find exactly the model truck club that is right for you.
