Step 2: Pick a design

Now that you have the items you need, it is time to find your design. You could draw your own design, or search the internet or other references as we did.

As I said earlier, my son wanted to build a HMMWV. So, we did an image search on Google for an M-998. We found these illustrations from the military training manual for the HMMWV. We decided that a "fastback" design would work best for my son's plans, so I added a couple of lines to the design.

We then printed out our design with a length of 6.5 inches, since that size best fit our block of wood.

Note: Make sure that your design meets the specifications in the rules. You may also want to check to see if there are other restrictions imposed by your pack or counsel.
