What you’re looking at above is a Lego set created by Manuel Nascimento that pays tribute to the Land Rovers that once competed in the Camel Trophy—the rather grueling expedition competition that ran from 1980 to 2000.

Fantastic little set isn’t it? It actually won Nascimento a ‘Best in Show’ award at the 2017 Paredes de Coura LEGO Fan Weekend in Portugal, and we reckon Lego would be bonkers not to make it official. Especially given Land Rover’s new real-life interpretation is so pricey.

Front and center is of course that fully kitted out Defender 110, which has the iconic Camel livery, a snorkel, a winch, a working lightbar, and even a roof tent on top. Brilliant. It’s on chunky tires and the interior is pretty much all there too. Probably comfier than a full-sized Defender in there, isn’t it?
