In 2020, Weeda Transport surprised everyone with a well-deserved second place with their “Pablo Escobar” during the Truckstar election for the most beautiful truck in the Netherlands. Quite an achievement, because before that no DAF had finished within the last 3 in the past five years.
WSI Models has already made the 1:50 models of the trucks from Verhaar and Verbeek that finished first and third respectively. That's why it was time for this beautiful "Pablo Escobar" too to be released as a 1:50 scale model.
The model, consisting of a DAF XF MY17 and Broshuis 2connect container chassis, will be delivered with some custom parts especially made for this truck and trailer, a 'must have' for every collector, with a great eye for detail and a particularly beautiful finish. We are very proud to be able to make this impressive combination of Weeda Transport.

The original truck was delivered by Verspui Trucks in 2019 by our own Pieter Both who was working there at the time. So he sold both the 1:1 and the 1:50 versions to the Weeda brothers. The construction of the truck was provided by Kentie Truckspecials and the interior was thoroughly overhauled by M&M Truckdesign. The fantastic paint job was done by MW Design, who have outdone themselves with this.
