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.

    Very nice!  Is it safe to assume the funny piece on the back is the tail?  Clever!!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice considering the limited parts supply.  Like the swiveling seat.  When did those type of connections become illegal?

    It is a shame that your comment is not as creative and smooth as your MOC.  Very impressive MOC by the way, Thanks for sharing!

    When you went back and looked at this one did you have one of those "I can't believe I didn't think of this before" moments?

    Thanks again for taking the time to share this.  For those of you that are wondering what is going on -  I asked plastic.ati to share some of his older MOCs that he didn't think were good enough to post at the time he built them.  I personally have almost zero original design talent, but I can learn from others, eventually.  Getting to see how someone that inspires me got to where he is today is extremely useful in my learning process.
