I told Jobjoris I was interested in a new Defender coming out from Schuco that I had seen online. It wasn’t something I was desperate to have, just something I liked the look of.

That’s changed now! This truck is amazing. It’s incredibly detailed. Perfectly proportioned, it just looks epic. The all-white look was something I had reservations about but once I got it in my hands, that changed too. It really stands out on my diorama because of the contrast. This Defender looks so good.

Obviously it is leaps and bounds ahead of the Matchbox, but they do pair well. I need to detail the Mbx to bring it up a level. All the details on the Schuco are perfectly placed and understated.

If you love Land Rovers, do yourself a favor and figure out how to add this gem to your collection. It’s the best I’ve ever seen, and it’s just about at the top of the list of what Jobjoris sent me! It’s that good. Truly an epic cast.

Thanks Joep!
