Bizarre - Diamond T Doodlebug 1:43 model

Diamond T Doodlebug model by Bizarre

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
Diamond T Doodlebug 1934 Texaco
In the 1930s Texaco’s fleet manager ‘Zip’ Kizer was aware that a potential barrier to converting homeowners to using oil rather than gas for heating was the thought of big ugly trucks lumbering through leafy neighbourhoods to deliver the fuel. The brief was given to theatrical turned industrial designer Norman Bell Geddes to come up with a compact and stylish vehicle and this spectacular rear-engined machine was the result. Just six examples were built and were barely taller than a regular American sedan of the day. The truck is modelled here as photographed in the late 1930s delivering aviation fuel and features a ladder on the side not seen on the original design, presumably for the operator to climb on to the top and reach the wing tanks on larger aircraft. Nicely done.


About Bizarre

Very well finished mass-produced resin models. As the name suggests, subjects chosen are often the more unusual cars to have raced. Paint finishes usually very good. Some models feature photo-etched components. Made in China.
