Selecting A Model Truck Club

Aug 21, 2008
If you love to assemble model trucks and find yourself spending more money on them than on gear for other activities then you may just be a model truck enthusiast. There is one way to take advantage of this love for model trucks. You can join a model truck club!

There are tons of these types of clubs out there. There are clubs that cater to those who love to assemble wooden models, those for lovers of plastic models and even clubs for those who love die cast models. There is truly no lack of choices when it comes to which one you might choose. The first thing you have to know is which type of model it is that you want to collect. While there are many clubs all around the world you might have to consider which may be located close to your home. For example, if you live in Canada then you might have the option of choosing a wooden model truck club or a die cast one. The Internet will be a great source of information on these clubs no matter which one you end up choosing. They are great for those who want to join a club that is based out of another country. The only limiting factor to these clubs nowadays is the membership requirements of the individual clubs.

You might feel that you will be shortchanged if you live abroad but no worries! With international model building clubs available the world round you will certainly find one that appeals to you. From Canada to Brazil and beyond, there is no shortage of these clubs. Just as with the clubs that were available in your home country, these will normally accept you for membership as long as you fill their requirements and apply.

This begs a question. What do you do in the case that there is not one available that you feel fits your tastes? Before you decide to hang your head and give it up altogether think about this. You could start your own model truck club. To do this you should make sure to do some research on other clubs. You will learn the setup including their rules and whatnot so that you can have a base model for your own club. You can easily decide which features you would like to incorporate and which ones would best be left out.

If you do start your own club then you might want to consider a couple things. You may want to list your club internationally. This will allow you to then accept members from other countries. There may be several out there that were looking for a club just as you were and may find their perfect fit in your new club. Secondly, you do not have to charge membership fees for your own club if you choose not to. If you do then you should make sure that they are used for providing the benefits that you tout in your own club's charter.
