Sometimes you have to look several times before you see where a piece needs to be used. For instance the 8 axle on page 48. :-)

Thank you for pointing this, however there's a large circle showing it ;)

I'll try to make my instructions more clear in the future :)

Now that you mention it, there is indeed a circle, but I thought it referred to the pins that are located next to the axle. Your instructions are excellent ...

I have built nearly all Technic flagship sets in the last few years, but I find building this C-Model at times challenging and therefore very rewarding. You should not have an issue building it, the instructions are excellent, it is just too difficult for little children in my opinion. It is essential to collect the necessary pieces for each image and then to look where they fit. Sometimes you have to look several times before you see where a piece needs to be used. For instance the 8 axle on page 48. :-)

This is one of the best recent Lego Technic set and buying the professional instructions by @M_longer is a no-brainer. For 10 USD you get hours of building pleasure.

 

All right, I'm convinced - I've just purchased the instructions from M_longer's page. It looks awesome, this will be a fun build.

Thanks for this excellent piece of work, M_longer!

I forgot to share with you a picture of the final model ... As you can see the model is ideal to transport the Saturn V top part ... ;-) I enjoyed building this C-model very much. I can recommend it wholeheartedly + it gives you the pleasure the take it apart and build the Claas again.

Here are the bricks that are not used for the C-model:

It seems that by coincedence I have made something that could be an official B model of 42054 set. CLAAS has introduced their new line of... wheel loaders. Have a look at new CLAAS Torion loader compared to my model :)

You were an inspiration to the engineers at Claas! 

Now you just need to make a silage/wood chip bucket for your loader.

But then it would not be an alternate model anymore ;)

True, but seriously, the resemblance between the models is astonishing 

Actually, those CLAAS loaders look like repainted Liebherrs.

Now that you mention it, your right. That's funny, maybe the companies have a connection?
