Can I break a long part to allow for an increase in scale?

Difficult one to explain without a sketch but here goes.....

Lets say I have a long tube (about 7m long) with end detail at both ends. Now when I create the drawing the scale is too small to see the end detail. I realise that I can create a larger scale breakout of the ends, but is there a way to break the length and effectively shorten the tube so I can scale the whole thing up?

I would normally achieve this by breaking the tube in the middle with two "Z" lines - do you know what I mean?
