LEGO Defender

We've all seen the box (& wished the new Defender looked more like it). My son got me one for Christmas. I'll post pics as/when I get time to put this together.
2573 pieces :eek: !?! 4-speed sequential gear box, moveable high/low gear & D-N-R selectors, pistons go up & down... Lego's have come a long way since I used to build 'em.

This should probably be in General, not technical discussions (It seems pretty technical to me!). Mods feel free to move it.

My family got me one. :)
10140


~500 page assembly manual is a little intimidating:
10141


Phase 1 (of 4) done. A few "leftover" parts, but I'm pretty sure I did everything right:
10142


Phase 2 of 4 done, and some more leftovers. The detail is incredible; the winch even has a brake:
10143

"A few leftover parts"... maybe it really IS a Defender! It will be interesting to see if I have different leftover parts on my build.

Thanks for posting pictures of the front cover of the manual. The lego app lets you scan the QR and view it digitally. I wanted to see the manual before buying one.
