From a squad car and fire truck to a supersonic airliner and stealth ship, All About Drawing Cool Cars, Fast Planes & Military Machines is filled with all things fueled for action. Kids will spend hours completing the easy-to-follow step-by-step drawing projects in this 80-page lesson-packed book. Each drawing project begins with simple shapes and then slowly develops into a true-to-life picture of an aircraft, watercraft, or land vehicle. Not only will children learn how to draw the awe-inspiring vehicles and machines that help our armed forces and hometown heroes accomplish their missions, but they will learn fun and interesting facts and see action-packed photos as they work their way through the pages of this beautifully illustrated book.
