As the heavy haulage industry in Australia is quite unique, customers were previously unable to buy this sort of collectible in an Australian float – until now."A large amount of our customers collect die-cast models, so they've been asking us to build something like this for years. We decided that the time was right and after some research chose to go through TWH collectibles that creates museum quality replicas which reflect the quality that Drake is renowned for. "Initially we were only going to make our 2x8 dolly and our 4x8 swinging low loader but found that there was no Australian truck available in a 1:50 scale. After talking with Paccar, we were able to secure a five year licence to produce the Kenworth T908 prime mover."
Each model is a complete scale working replica of Drake's trailers. The ramps go up and down, the trailer widens just like the real trailer, the skid plate moves, and the suspension moves as do the hydraulic levers. Some of the features of the Kenworth T908 include realistic engine detail, Australian licence plate, opening doors, locking and sliding fifth wheel and functioning suspension.
