Drake Collectibles’ range of die-cast models are meticulously detailed and look amazing in a display cabinet or on a shelf, but our customers have shown some remarkable creativity in using them in wildly wonderful situations.
One great example of this can be found with this glamorous wedding cake that was carried into position with a Drake Collectibles die-cast model 12 row Steerable. We assume that all the necessary permits were sought in advance of the event, and that the operators viewed the entire range of our 1/50 scale trailers to pick the right model for the load. We’re thrilled to have played a small part in such a big day.
Not to be outdone, other collectors took to the Drake Collectibles Facebook page to share special moments in their life where their models took centre stage. One commenter affixed a special message to her truck and trailer model combination to let her fiance know they were expecting a new addition to their family, although we think it will be a while yet before the baby can start their own collection.
Another took a lovely photo of her son and the equally-gorgeous CQ Group C509 to introduce him to the world. We wish them both a happy future ahead and who knows, maybe one day he will be driving the real thing.
In the spirit of the season, one collector decked out their recreation of a striking green Doolan’s Transport truck to carry a Christmas tree around their table, decked out with all the trimmings for the season.
We love seeing our range of high quality die-cast models being used in inventive ways, and want to know if you’ve done something similarly creative with yours. Contact Drake Collectibles today with your submissions or to find out more about our range of quality models and merchandise.
