‘Gebroeders Geelhoed’ collection
We are proud to announce that Gebroeders Geelhoed have tasked WSI Models with creating a Gebroeders Geelhoed collection of 1:50 scale models. The models from the first series are now available.
We start with the DAF which was most recently added to their unique fleet. This rugged DAF XF Super Space Cab 4x2 tractor is fitted with a container chassis with a 20ft tank container.
The DAF XF was built by Nieuwdorp Customs in Hansweert, which made changes including fitting a flat side skirt to its left side and a storage box to its right side. The rear of the cabin is covered entirely with smooth plate. A special hose rack and a set of upright exhausts are the finishing touches on the truck. Naturally, the rear bumper and a diamond-plate chassis platform are part of the package.
The large trailer fleet is often used with a personalized container chassis, such as the miniature. A chassis needs a tank and what could be better than a tank in a company’s own style? Together with WSI’s art department, we achieved this fantastic result. This means that the model is ahead of the wishes of entrepreneurs Lars and Niels Geelhoed. That is because this container currently only exists as a 1:50 scale model by WSI. In the near future, the real-life Geelhoed tank containers will soon be driving on roads throughout Europe.
Gebroeders Geelhoed B.V. was founded in March 2013. The young company is specialized in both domestic and international tank transport. The brothers both worked in tank transport and were employed by the same company as their father: Joop Geelhoed.
However, that transport company went bankrupt in 2013. After discussions between Lars, Niels, and Joop, the brothers created their own company in which each brother had one truck and each was meant for different clients. In 2015, their father Joop joined the company as a driver. Just like how he previously helped the brothers from behind the scenes, they have now purchased a car for him. From that moment onwards, the company experienced rapid growth. In 2021, the vehicle fleet includes 23 vehicles that pull shipments and 15 trailers that can be pulled which vary in size from 20ft to 30ft tank chassis.
Everything shows that the Geelhoed family and their drivers are very passionate about their work. Every single vehicle features sleek designs and always looks spick and span.
The Geelhoed brothers are aiming for a good business relationship and WSI Models is happy to help in this regard! See below for the sneak preview of what else is in store!
