1:53 Scale Diecast Truck Modeling
Models Built by Dave Bontrager
Photographer, Author, and Editor: David A. Bontrager
Publisher: DABble Publishing & Imaging

  • 1:53 Scale Diecast Truck Modeling – Models Built By Dave Bontrager, Vol. 85, is a CD photo album featuring photos of custom diecast truck models that the author built in 1:53 scale.
  • This is not a “how to” presentation, but rather photos of the finished models.  In 1:53 scale there aren’t any commercial detail parts available, so everything had to be hand-fabricated, which of course required a lot of work and time.  These are not all of the 1:53 scale trucks that I have built, but it is a good representation.  The models in this photo album represent some of the finest 1:53 scale truck modeling you will find anywhere.
  • All of the photos are color.
  • The images are in pristine condition and will view excellently on screen.  A few may be slightly less than perfect, but I feel the historic value of the trains shown outweighs the technical aspects of the photo.
  • Pages may be printed for personal non-commercial use only – not for public distribution by any manual, mechanical or electronic means.
  • Custom enlargements and posters are available directly from the author.  All custom enlargements and posters are professionally printed on Premium Heavyweight Gloss Photo Paper.  Not all photos may be available as individual prints, but most are.  Email inquiries to: sales@fatjacksplace.com or dabontrager@yahoo.com
