Here is my last mod for a month or so. I call it the fractured rainbow, because it kind of looks that way, and in honor of my recent fractured wrist :lol: the cuts are hard to explain, but it is a 14 sided cube with a very interesting symmetry, with this puzzle I have discovered how hard it is to hand cut 70 stickers with a cast on :lol: i had some help though, well anyhow, here's some pics, depending on how they came out, i may take some more pics when it's light outside.

Of all the 3x3 mods that have recently been made, I think this one has the most interesting symmetry. Its 2 part windmill, and 1 part confused pillow.

It has 8 of 48 possible symmetries.
I think this is the first mod I have seen where this specific subgroup of the hexahedral symmetries is applicable.
BTW: I haven't made it. 8-)

yes! wow, i'm on a roll :D and yeah, it is part windmill and part confused pillow, i really like it because in checker pattern it retains it's original shape.

BTW, here's the link to the auction
http://cgi.ebay.com/Rubiks-Cube-Modific ... 27b1267e65

sorry it had to be a three day auction, I'm kind of rushed right now beacause of certain things.

eBay is showing postage at more than US$30.00. Would you like to make a promise again to set reasonable postage, and to combine shipping with other winnings if I win two?

Yes, that is no problem. we will do that for any auctions that the price isn't reasonable. for some reason the ebay calculate shipping isn't very accurate. :?
