Came out of my LEGO Dark Ages in 2016.  Trying to catch up with the rest of the world when it comes to designing a MOC.  Currently downloading small MOCs and dissecting the Instructions.

To speed up my learning process, I make a lot of what I call "Rat Rods" - all the correct shapes (or reasonable substitutes) and don't worry about the colors for now.

I attend a weekly LEGO gathering in my community.  Usually working with Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren, Grandparents, or Great Grandparents.  Therefore, when I make Instructions in LDD my #1 priority is to keep the build flat on the table for as long as possible so they don't have to fight that "Gravity Guy".  I also like to have the 3D view capability that LDD allows.

Takes a lot of time to build LDD instructions, but to me it's worth it because of all the extra learning I do when I try to make the file.

I am "VERY" grateful for all the great MOCs created by the designers I am following.

    There are 28 Rebrickable users that own this set.  Could any of you please share the instructions?

    Cute Cart!!!  Are you going to use this as a starting point and keep adding parts and stretching the wheel base?

    Multiple times better build than the Corvette, at least in my opinion.  Slowly teaching myself the instruction part of Studio.  Will use your file in the future when I decide I am ready to tackle Technic build instructions.  Right now having tough enough time with just bricks and plates.  ;-)

    Thanks for sharing the io!
