My joinery friend (who always helps me to cut the wood cubes) rejected to cut triangle pieces for me.
He said it is very dangerous, therefore I could not make the puzzles I mentioned before earlier.
I had to cut the small pieces by myself, and it was really a new challenge for me.
At last I finished the project this morning. Please take a look at the link -

Comments are welcome, especially when you are interested to collect this puzzle.
(I plan to ever sell this, please give me an offer by e-mail if you really want it.)

Thank Vadim.

Sorry for the inconvenience, the free web site has
its limit.

I am asking Sandy to help me again.
I hope he will put some pictures on Twisty soon.

The Description I put on my free web site:

Title: Is the 5-Order Tetrahedron a Solar System ?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

It looks like very strange, but it is true:
A 5-Order Tetrahedron Puzzle (The 1st picture) and a Solar System Puzzle (The 2nd picture)
are the same thing, they are formed by the same puzzle units -
Tetrahedron units * 45
Octahedron units * 20
(Each unit is made of wood and having a Magic Attractor beneath the sticker on each face of the unit.)

Colour Scheme:

For each Tetrahedron unit - White on the base face, and Red, Yellow, Blue on the side faces (clockwise).

For each Octahedron unit- Red, Yellow, Blue and White duplicated on the opposite faces.
(See the last picture)

For the Icosahedron Mould (the Helio-Solid of the Solar System Puzzle) -
Each concave part formed by 5 Octahedron units with the same colour faces jointed together;
No adjacent areas are of the same colour (by Four-Colour Theorem).

There are 12 Octahedron-Stars (each is formed by five Octahedron units) in the same Helio-Solid,
each Octahedron unit is shared by three Octahedron-Star (See the middle picture),
the concave part is the central part of the Octahedron-Star,
we can twist any Octahedron-Star to scramble the colours of the concave parts,
the player is to unscramble the puzzle.
