These are not too shabby. Look around the forums here, I bet you could learn a lot of different techniques and materials that could help you improve your work and improve your range of modding! Also, the majority of the members you see that do modding I would imagine would be open to helping you out if you had any questions!

These are great! Are they your first mods? Were they entirely hand-made?

I'd certainly be interested in some descriptions of these projects. How did you make them? What mechanisms are inside? (Unless, of course, you don't want to tell; in which case, I would totally understand!)

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome!

Both mods look fantastic, could use a little finishing, but FANTASTIC!

My favorite is the 2x2x6.

If those are your first mods, then you are very bold. Not many people chose a mech mod as thier first. I have atempted to build a 4x4x5 3 times. The first one was never a reality. The 2nd is in my avatar with my dog, Cocoa. The third is lost in the mail between the US, France, and hopefully on it's way to Clauswe in Germany. Never tried a 2x2x6, but it isn't that bad. Good job.

They look good, much better than my mods. Please don't mind me asking, but if you have time can you take mech pics of the 4x4x5? Also, what's the stickerless mod? Is it a wall cube?

You must be very good at this, as I have tried several times to make cuboids, and have done nothing but slaughter innocent 3x3s... :|

I bet their are more than that. I have made 2, he has atleast one, Thomas made one, either the drizzle or p l astic made one (I get them confused alot :mrgreen: ) Jin made one (atleast one, he has them for sale) If you count the variations their are atlest the wall cube aslo made by thomas, their is the cube one (like what the stage his blank one is at right now) and I know I have seen at least 3 of those. I will probably have to make another one because the one I sent to claus is currently lost in the mail. [/rant] Not to say that that isn't fabulous and rare.

same here...
i have killed innocent 3x3x3s before but as the proverb says failure is the mother of success
i am sure you will soon make great mods!! hope to see them soon
p.s. i use those clown cubes for alot of my mods..... you can pop the center off and there is screw and spring some thing like a diy(cheap too)

alot of you have asked me what the mech is..... it is the same one as jin and many others that have build the 4x4x5 (except tony) go to jin's website for more pics of the mech
