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.

    Impressive!  From the pictures, it doesn't look like it would take much to convert the launch tower into a robot.

    It's the picture where the truck is facing the trailer - Raised eyebrows, big eyes, wide open mouth saying, "Oooooooh, what a sweet looking trailer, hope I'm the one that gets to pull it!"

    Such an awesome looking personality on the truck!  Don't know how to describe it, but the expression belongs in a Cars movie.
