Hey, I have seen you on Ebay before. Your puzzles look fantastic.

I really like this one.

Hi, welcome to the forum :)

Great mod! Looks very well done. I like what you did with the stickers. They just add the final touch to this wonderful Mod :)

Wow. It looks sweet. Nice idea. The first void mod with actual cutting into the cubies (isn't it??) I would find it even better in black since I know that the original ones from Gentosha and Mr. Okamoto respectively don't exist in white do they? :wink: Or is it painted in white? The cut down cubies need to be filled I guess so did you dye?
Can you also make one where all edges are rounded? That would be great to see too. Keep it up.

This isn't one of the original voids. You picked up on the cuts along the cubies. The KO voids all have very shallow cuts, where the original is deeper. 1mm or so from the top vs. 2 mm. It makes a difference in the stickers. I mean, the stickers on the KO's are easy to come off because of the bump by the seams.

Obviously this is not a Gentosha, but those immitations turns as well and are solid built, I was surprised! Stickers are bad but I chaged them and cleaned oily lubricant they had put. I actually plan to make one with all edges rounded, but that means corners will be spheric, and I dont really know if stickers will stick alright, or if I will have to paint or whatever... How do we sticker spheric puzzles??? :roll:
