A heads up, there are very few jobs like this out in industry. Most of the time, this will be just part of the job for someone who is either a CAD Drafter or Engineer. There is no specific job that I am aware of where this is an employee's only type of task.

This was part of my job when I was an engineering/drafting intern in college.

It may depend on the industry.
Automotive, marketing, special effects, advertising, prop making, model building, scale models, museums, restoration work...
There are many industries that could have a use for this type of work.

It might be good to create a portfolio with lots of examples of models and projects. Then when the opportunity arises, you can send it and a resume. If you have no paperwork ready, nobody is going to wait a few weeks while you get it together.

15 or 20 years ago you could be hired at almost any CAD/drafting house to do this kind of work because so much stuff was on paper back then instead of in digital format but this is not the case any more.

A game studio would be your best bet. Most of the time the modeller in this field takes the concept artist sketched views and recreates them as a 3d model. You will not be doing cars very much because todays cars are already created in a 3d CAD format so most studios just get the CAD content and then redraw it in a format that best suits the game engine.
