Hello Everyone. I am pleased to announce the creation of (possibly) the worlds first and only cubic 3x3x5 hexagonal dipyramid. I have had it completed for over a week now, but just hand't gotten around to making a topic about it. It was made from a hand casted 3x3x4, modded into a 3x3x5, and then remodded into its current shape. The pieces were casted in alumilite black, and the stickers were hand cut. Go ahead and check out the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPlsmXcHD9c, it might still be processing, uploading, buffering , whatever you call it :wink: And check out more details and pictures below.

Like i said as far as i know its the one and only. I really wanted to make something first, and this puzzle was just crying out to be made. THIS PUZZLE WILL BE UP FOR AUCTION. If you are interested keep your eyes open for the auction. I will post a new thread and a new video announcing the auction. I will be getting stickers machine cut and doing a little more polishing then this puzzle will be perfect. oh and please if you have any questions, do ask.

and some new pictures for the museum

Very nice finish. I really need to get into building, all my ideas are being stolen! :D

If anyone make a cubic 3x3x5 rhombic dodecahedron, it means war!

Back to topic: It's a very good puzzle, very well cut stickers.
