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.

    Not a clue I was going to learn something new from that remark.  Thank You!

    Nice build, but how did you get all the round squares to fit in the peg holes?   ;-)  I'm really tired and that was all I could think of.

    Never mind, finally my brain clicked and I realized the original instructions have 40 possible builds.  ;-)

    Very nice build!  Does make me wonder what 1st through 40th look like.  Didn't dig real hard, but can't seem to find them.  Are they posted somewhere?
