Hi guys,

Has anybody images of flambore's "Star Barrel" ?

The background:
Since I entered the first puzzle to the museum I quite often rediscovered puzzles which I couldn't enter because of different reasons. The most common are:
  • Missing informations, e.g. the inventors name.
  • Puzzle not finished
  • To small or blurry images
  • No images at all
Sadly the puzzles presented by Frank Schwartz (aka flambore) fall into the highlighted category. See this thread as an example:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=11828
Luckily I could help myself for most of Frank's puzzle but all these measures failed for the "Star Barrel". My question: Does anybody have images of the Star Barrel?

Everybody can see what the Star Barrel looks like:

It is the second puzzle of this video.

Greetings
Andreas

As I recall, katsmom currently owns this puzzle and recently (~mid-November of this year) took photographs of it for a tribute to flambore that she posted on her blog (3rd photo down). Perhaps she still knows where it is and can get some good pictures for you?

I knew it. I searched through five collections (including Roxanne's, but only her collection) and found nothing. Lets say: This is what the community is for.

Please do so.
And please don't get mad at me. The TODO-list of Claus is ... longer. :roll:

Andreas I assume you don't know the existence of this.

It has been casted by Frank in 2009. It was a give away from him to me.

I know them but decided to ignore 1x1x1's no matter which shape they have.
