Growing up on a farm, I saw these quite regularly - and with harvest season in full swing, I decided to give this build a try.
I downloaded and used LDD for the first time today, and this was my end result. Enjoy!

Excellent MOC, absolutely adore the details on the truck, and I love the shape of the trailer. The colour scheme is spot on too  :thumbup:

I have to say that this model is very nice looking.  Seeing multiple trailers like this at work (filled with corn), you captured the realism nicely.  Very beautiful, I like the "lighting" on the sides, the "ejection system" at the bottom, and the bows on the top.

The only criticism I have, and maybe this is just because I am used to Lego Town, but the legs on the trailer are a bit "small" and/or
maybe plain for the trailer.

Overall nice job on the model itself.

Ben

I accidently snapped a bungee cord on the trailer when I was learning how to use the probe. (when I was learning to grade corn). :blush:  oops.

Thanks! Funny thing is that I built the truck almost 2 years ago, and it`s been waiting for a trailer ever since  :laugh: You can see more pics of the truck alone in my flickr account.

Thanks Ben. I just used those legs to take the picture. I haven`t found a good way to fold a set of legs up and keep them attached - there is hardly any more room on the underside of it. Where are you from in Canada?

do you have a brickshelf account?  If so, you could upload the ldd file (.ldx file).  The files are most likely in MyDocuments/Lego Creaions/Models.

I uploaded the LDD file of the above picture, but will probably have to wait until the folder becomes viewable because the ldd file is automatically into an extractable zip file.

Hope this was helpfull,

Those legs work, but still no space underneath (comes in contact with the back of the tractor)

Thanks for the LDD help - I do have a brickshlef account and will add it there.

Cheers.

Excellent semi 'lm'. Great job building the trailer, making it functional. The tractor looks awesome, as well. Looks just like one right off the farm. Very cool truck, keep up the great work Posted Image

It should be publicly viewable shortly.  The .lfx file for the "help" to build the trailer legs is already viewable in my brickshelf account.  Legomaniac's folder just needs to be approved by Brickshelf Moderation team, thanks.
