    Hi there.  Great build, I really enjoyed it. This is the first MOC I've built. The instructions were easy to follow. My sets are not well organised so it took me some time to find some of the pieces and on occasions had to resort to grey rather than black but other than that it is really good. I've also tried it with my remote control set up. This seems to reduce the power from the motor a little but not sure why. This is particularly evident when raising the forks. Many thanks. This has given me confidence to try other builds and the nudge to organise my pieces!

    Cool model! I wnt to build it right away but if I try to open your ldr file I get a message that 379 pieces are removed because they were not placed correctly. Is the ldr-file ok?

      It means that you are trying to open it with Lego Digital Designer, but LDR files are supposed to be used with LDraw-compatible software. Go to www.ldraw.org and download all-in-one installer, run it, make sure that LDView is selected, then use it to view the model and each step of the building process. If you want a more powerful tool, then I recommend installing LDCad (www.melkert.net/LDCad) instead of included MLCad.
