1:87 Scale Truck Modeling
Models Built by Dave Bontrager
Photographer, Author, and Editor: David A. Bontrager
Publisher: DABble Publishing & Imaging

  • 1:87 Scale Truck Modeling – Models Built By Dave Bontrager, Vol. 84, is a CD photo album featuring photos of truck models that the author built during the 1990s.
  • The photos in this CD photo album show my efforts in modeling trucks in 1:87 scale.  This is not a “how to” presentation, but rather photos of the finished models.  All models are plastic and almost all were built in the mid to late 1990s.  This was long before pre-decorated models were available, so a lot of painting and decaling was a necessity.  The models in this photo album represent some of the finest 1:87 scale truck modeling you will find anywhere.
  • All but one 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
