I like the design LT, not so sure the colour combination works though.

My pick would be an all white cab, or even yellow if you have the parts.

Green and white are my council's colours.....though I would go all white but that's a bit boring isn't it ! legolaugh

I agree with Xyver, nice design, but the colour scheme just doesn't seem to fit. Maybe it's more the grey of the tray which is the issue.

Sadly can't change that but since a few people don't like the green I find some white parts and try it.......still think it might look boring and ho-hum. legolaugh

Aware of that, they recently came out with that CITY Dump Truck which I have. Maybe you could try green and grey instead?

Yep, that version looks quite a bit better. I still think green/grey would be better, but white/grey definitely looks better than the previous design.

That's a neat little trick. You always give me so much inspiration, but I never put the finer details into my work like you do.

Can you post a photo of the inside of the cab, just curious how you put the two minifigs in.

Seriously, Lego should employ you at their ideas factory I reckon lego:3 That mixer is ingenious and I really think Lego would struggle to represent a better example of one themselves.
