Safire6 Posted August 5, 2022 Share Posted August 5, 2022 OK this is not technically a model unless you consider it to be a 'snapper'. My wife gave it to me for Christmas. It's the only Lego thing I've ever built. 2573 pieces total and 860 steps to build it. Working independant suspension, doors, gate and hood open, pistons on 6 cylinder "engine" move up and down, forward/nuetral/reverse gearing, high and low gears, working winch steering, etc. The engineering to design the complicated drivetrain is pretty fantastic IMHO. Here is a 2 year old review of it from Motor Trend: https://www.motortrend.com/features/building-the-lego-land-rover-defender/ It reportedly took an experienced Lego builder 5 hours to complete it. It took me about 20 hours! Almost 17" long, estimated scale of 11:1. Comments welcome. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
