‘More amazing than we thought!’
Friendship gives this 143 a second lease of life
In 2019, Michiel Bloemert and his good friend Corné van de Waerdt started restoring a stunning Scania 143. The vehicle was imported from Italy and is now fully restored in the familiar bright blue Redder Transport corporate colours.
Time and attention make the difference
In less than a year-and-a-half, the two friends completely restored the Scania V8 in the Staphorst-based transport company’s workshop, which is run by Michiel’s father and uncle.
Proud family company, proud of its fleet, keen to be seen
Once the fleet was ready, Michiel contacted WSI. Michiel began: ‘We immediately contacted WSI as Redder had already commissioned various models that were all simply stunning. WSI listened really carefully to our requirements and we had an immediate click, which ultimately resulted in this fantastic model! We’re so pleased with it and the miniature is even more amazing than we’d ever thought possible!’
