Growing up, my childhood was an endless vista of long summers, carefree times and joyful discovery. But mostly Lego. The Danish bricks of endless possibilities filled drawers and drawers in my bedroom, resulting in a continuous stream of shonky-looking multicoloured jalopies that didn’t look nearly as good as I’d hoped.
One gets the feeling, however, that Spanish Lego enthusiast Fernando – known as Sheepo - was considerably better at creating decent machines when he was young. Just check out this Land Rover Defender 110 that he’s knocked up now, in his mid-20s. Made from almost 2800 parts, it has working suspension, a five-speed gearbox and seven motors. Oh, and it’s radio-controlled.
Want one? Well, right now it’s just a one-off creation, but go and vote for it at Lego Cuusoo and it could well become a reality. More likely than from our approach of throwing money at the screen, anyway.
