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.

    Other than the Corvette (42093) are any other vehicles built in the same scale?  It would be nice to have the trailer full of cars.

    Don't have this set, but helping a friend that does.  Awesome set!  

    2 minor glitches that I would have done differently. 

    1 -  put some half bushings on the axles behind the front wheels (A model car) to keep them from being pushed on far enough to touch the frame.  

    2 - It would have been nice if LEGO had split bag 2 into at least 2 bags (or 3).  Bag 2 takes up a lot of room in the building area.

    Actually, a third thing - put the headlight bar on the car (A model) before installing the front bumper.

    In the segment of mining I was in, equipment was sized so that 2 buckets (3 max) filled the haul truck.  This looks fairly proportionate.  Great job on the Truck!
