Drake Collectibles has announced the release of their largest 1:50 scale trailer model to date. The Drake 12x8 steerable platform, one of the flag ships of the actual Drake fleet, can now be found in miniature! This new model has the same award winning functionality and features you have come to expect from Drake. This initial release is offered in three liveries; McAleese, Doolan, and blank white.
|Drake ZT09066 - 1/50 Doolan 2x8 dolly and 7x8 steerable trailer - MSRP $390|
They are offering this unit in a kind of unique way. The standard trailer that comes with a 2x8 goose neck and loading ramps is offered in a 7x8 configuration. To make it bigger, an accessory package is available to take it all the way to a 12x8 configuration. Of course, this gives you other options as well, like a 9x8 or 10x8 configuration.
|Drake ZT09066A - 1/50 Accessory Package - 2x8 + 3x8 + drop in deck - MSRP $290|
This model is loaded with features including functional hydraulic gooseneck that raises and lowers, functional skid plate, drop down legs, two position kingpin, oscillating suspension on dolly, removable spare tires, adjustable and locking 5th wheel, opening engine cover with detailed diesel power pack, adjustable sliding head assembly, opening steering control boxes with detailed controls and instructions, rotating head assembly, working suspension, contra-rotating steering, ramps raise and lower, and a deck that widens out to 98mm.

Drake has also added to their Kenworth C509 livery by releasing the model in the color scheme of Doolan Heavy Haulage. The C509 is the largest Kenworth road truck in Australia and although it looks similar, it is much larger than the previously released T908-909 trucks. The C509 boasts a realistically replicated cab interior, an opening engine hood, and a photo-etched exhaust guard. It also features a sliding and pivoting 5th wheel attachment with a spring loaded locking mechanism. This truck is absolutely loaded with features.
