My model was voted Model of the Year in 2000 by the readers of the model building magazines Modell Fan and Modell Magazin.
After the 401 with a folding soft top, the closed version was to come with a fixed Westfalia driver’s cab and clearing shovel.
The box contained 6 gray sprues with the parts for the chassis, engine and body. A sprue with the glass parts and a chrome sprue with two exterior mirrors and a Mercedes star. In addition, a blister card with 5 tires of the type SR1 terrain profile. The blister pack also contained four different metal coil springs, two for the front axle and two for the rear axle. A small decal and 18-page assembly instructions, which took me 8 weeks, were also included in the kit.
I had sold 4500 kits within 12 months and that as a newcomer to the model building market.
