How to do ‘Trace’. Can you do it for the first time?
– What is “trace”?
It is a method to grasp the shape of the kit by copying the completed sample of the instruction form with tracing paper.
You can buy tracing paper at amazon etc.
Everyone with a mechanical pencil from the top has become able to draw accurate illustrations.
– Although it is said that anyone can draw, can it be done for the first time?
It is not difficult even for beginners, just to trace and write.
If you dare say, it will be the biggest hurdle to start or not to start.
I hope to explain it so that its hurd will go down as much as possible this time.
Why “Trace” is necessary
– Why is “trace” necessary?
It is difficult to accurately grasp the shape of the kit within the beginning.
It is good to watch the kit carefully, but you do not have to know everything just by looking at it.
Even if I am trying to remodel the kit and reproduce the shape correctly, the balance and atmosphere (subtleties) are subtly different.
Based on my reflections, I started “tracing”.
In order to grasp the shape of the kit firmly,
It is important to understand shapes well.
You can say it when you sketch a picture,
Even if you just copy and write it, it will make it easier for you to grasp the shape and size balance as you look naturally in parts.
3 tips of the basic ‘Trace’
– Please tell me the trick to draw if you like.
First of all it is a basic trick,
Draw from top to bottom
Because it draws with a mechanical pencil on the tracing paper, it is to prevent rubbing and the line disappearing.
Tap the paper and brighten the room
Tap the tape so that it will not be misaligned on the way to make it easier to see the lines you want to shoot.
When the picture is dark, copy it with thin color
Because dark colored parts are hard to see the lines and are difficult to trace, we use a copy machine to make the density thinner and print.
Let’s draw it by checking while turning partly in a dark place.
I’m sorry, I can only say things of this order, but could it be helpful?
There are other ways to do this
– Is there any other way?
In addition, prepare the picture of the kit,
There is also a method to compare it with an illustration to refer on a personal computer.
The difference comes clearly in a more accurate way than Torres, but knowledge of simple image processing is necessary.
In model journal model graphics, this method is introduced.

Conclusion. After all we recommend “Trace”
On the other hand, this
“Trace” All you need is tracing paper and a mechanical pencil, the way you do it is simple.
If you want to grasp the shape of the kit before modding it is better to draw with “Trace”.
It is advantageous when you want to know rough features or you can start right away without knowledge.
