Hi everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your week. It is a beautiful day here in Victoria, a great day for building puzzles.

Here is my latest puzzle mod. I call it Apollo's Rhombic Dodecahedron. I was initially gong to call it Golden RD but since every piece was modified I decided to give it my own name. The puzzle was made using a White Golden Cube that was purchased from Meffert's. All the pieces were capped with ABS Plastic sheet. Any gaps between the extended pieces were filled with White Apoxie Sculpt. The stickers were machine cut using Oracal and Arlon Vinyl. Hope you enjoy.

I have added some WIP pics. I have a video uploading now and I will post it when it is ready.

P.S- Oh, I will also have a plastic sheeting tutorial up tomorrow. I had mentioned it last week but time is a little hard to find. Just have to do the voice over. I will post the link in the puzzle building section when it is done.

That's as awesome as usual Kyler! I can't imagine this to be an easy mod to do on a golden cube, even if it's your fourth different one!
can't wait for the videos.
