"A Truck Modeler’s Notebook on CD" is a complete overhaul of the original hardcopy edition written and published by the author, David A. Bontrager , which is now out of print.  The 386-page book on CD offers modeling tips and suggestions primarily for LTL freight equipment and Rooster Cruisers.  Much accurate prototype information is presented with photos, text, and colorized computer drawings (done by the author) to assist modelers in getting their models built accurately.  One of the several new sections added to the ebook is a photo essay featuring contemporary equipment of Roadway Express, concentrating on both the variety of equipment and the different paint and lettering schemes, and also several photos of Roadway trailers in intermodal service.  The book concentrates on 1:87th scale, but much of the information can be used in other scales.  The book even contains some fun stuff, such as a 160-question detailed trucking trivia quiz and a diner recipe for goulash!  There is simply much too much in the book to give a detailed description here.  If you have any questions please email me.
