I got a big surprise yesterday. I box from Belgium arrived for me. I could not figure out why or who it was from. Some time ago Ivan D. contacted me for my address saying that he got some MB catalogues. So I gave him my address. Few weeks later (yesterday) I get a box from Belgium. I could not figure out why (as I don't recall bidding on Ebay or ordering anything from there). So I opened it up to find three 202 C-Class models neatly packed in the box with a letter. I read the letter... the models were from Gunther. Ivan D actually had no catalogues to send me. He asked me for my address so that Gunther could send me these model in secrecy. I was in complete shock. I was not expecting this at all. Just finding these models (mainly the two wagons) and sending them to me was more than enough, but to give/send them to me free of charge was just way over the top! I cannot thank you enough Gunther and Ivan D for helping him out. :cheers

I only have one W211 E-Class and I plan on getting the Spark W140 S-Class sedan and coupe sometime soon. ...but I think I will put most of my 1:43 efforts into collecting all the hobby shop (street) W202 C-Class, slowly though as I would like to get some more 1:18's
