I did Falling water also, but it was before the LU mod, so some of the pieces were off in color. That set is decieving, because it is small but there are a ton of little pieces and it took a lot longer than I had anticipated. (I was watching Gene Simmons Family Jewels at the time and I know there were several episodes that passed before I finished.)
I too was surprised at how long it took to build after first seeing it.

As for the Falling Water LDD file!
This is an awsome model!
I'm not sure if you mean mine or the set in general, but thanks!

Nicely done, ADHO
You've really mastered it!
Is it me, or those sets look better in LDD than in reality?
Good day, ladies and gentlemen! )
Thank you very much, Penguin
I agree that some of these do look better, but the lack of printing and parts on some sets do let them down.

I think it's because the pictures of real life models have scale references in them, be it the setting the model is placed in or the individual bricks themselves. Both of which are pretty much unavoidable. Where as in LDD, you mostly don't see the individual bricks.
Also, on your version of Falling Water, it looks better when you twist the tree bricks to the way they are in the instructions. (At least, that's my opinion)
The absence of the gaps between the bricks can be both good and bad at different times.
I prefer the neater, topiary-like look of the trees myself.
