WSI delivers a splendid DAF XF Comfort Cab combi to Ben Achterkamp
Cup of coffee with Ben!
Each of the distinguishable DAF trucks operated by Bennie Achterkamp Transport with its office in Beemte Broekland in Gelderland has a unique appearance.
It is the unique colour ‘Achterkamp green’ in particular, in combination with the distinct crème-coloured stripes, which make the trucks instantly recognizable even from a long distance.
Recently, WSI were able once again to deliver scale model number three to Ben Achterkamp, who together with his father Bennie, brother Jurjen, and driver Stefan, keep the trucks on the road.
On this occasion, it is time for the splendid DAF XF530 container combi. This truck includes a range of unique details added by Ben that hark back to the past. Many of these details can also be seen on the scale model, such as the old-fashioned ‘tension rod’ under the front bumper and the model designation lettering ‘5300 ATi’ that refers back to the classic DAF 3600 model.
The DAF proved to be a real favourite amongst the visitors to the Truckstar Festival in Assen last July, and won second prize in the 'losgestort' (loose goods) category in the competition for The Netherlands’ Most Beautiful Truck.
The WSI scale model of this splendid combi will be available soon at our dealerships and at our WSI Collectors shop in Nieuwegein!
