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

  • Intermodal Modeling – 1:87 Scale Models Built By Dave Bontrager, Vol. 82, is a CD photo album featuring photos of intermodal models built by the author in the 1990s.
  • There are unlimited opportunities in modeling modern intermodal equipment.  This CD photo album shows some of the intermodal models I have built.  The models were built in the 1990s, but the techniques and theories are timeless.  Also, the models were built when pre-decorated models were just coming to the market, so a lot of painting and decaling was required.  The CD is not only for enjoyable viewing, but perhaps an inspiration for you to get started with your own projects.
  • Most photos are color, and also some black and white photos are included.
  • 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
