Oh dear, the wheels look shite as seems to be the case quite often with Lego models :cry:

Epic!

Land Rover Defender model just arrived today. As is obvious from the complexity, I've had to abandon the pretence to my wife that our 5 year old is going to do any of this (or that I'll let him play with it once its done given he is a more productive dismantler than assembler) :lol:

NFI when I'm going to get the time to do this given I managed Christmas Day and Boxing Day off work and that was it... :?

The Defender is possibly a bit much for a 5yo to manage alone yeah, but no harm in including them in the process if you can. I did a book//bag each night I think, to spread the "fun" out a little. I bought the Lambo over Xmas, so now I feel obliged to wait for the Bugatti to go on sale again so I can get that. Getting expensive this Lego malarky :oops:

Also, waiting on the Creator Expert Police Station (and freebie classic car) and the Bonsai tree, Fiat500 to arrive..

Lockdown has a lot to answer for.

Finished the defender - was quite hard work to be honest! I timed the fourth stage out of interest and it came to 2.5 hours so pretty much a ten hour set in total!

Think I may take a break from anything Lego related for err about a minimum of 6 months maybe :lol:

It seems Brexit has caught up with Lego, my delivery has been stuck at customs for four odd days now. The second order hasn't even left their warehouse yet, over a week later. :(

Yes, no word on my missing Defender parts hence me browsing things to be going on with. Does seem a bargain at that price.

The mini is brilliant, the Dakar I could take or leave but is still a decent thing. I never bothered with rest of the set, it’s still in its bags

Edit to add- if you’re new to speed champions and you’re only experience is the Quattro don’t expect these to be the same scale, the Quattro is a step bigger and better proportioned

Typical Argos - not available for delivery, not available to collect in any store. Clickbait price.

Edit:
Transit order is delivering tomorrow, I found out tonight.
The previous order has been delayed - email to inform me of such tonight.

Corner Garage is back in stock, so like a mug I've ordered that as well..

I've had the Jan 31st email too.

I've got the '89 Batmobile, the wing is tempting but it's a huge model, you'll need big shelves :lol:
