I got my order from Olivér today! I am overly satisfied with the quality of the sticker he made for me as well as the service he provided. This thread however, is not about Olivér or the stickers. Its about my puzzle

Without further adue, here you have some pictures of the finished puzzle (I updated the pictures, because the old ones were so bad they didn't do any justice to the puzzle).

Me to! :) Since the first time I saw it (over 3 years ago), I really REALLY wanted this one! It took quite a bit of encouragement from myself to begin to build it.

also, after I got it lubricated it turns much nicer! It still needs to be "broken in" some more. But still, I recorded another video of it and linked to it in the top post ;)

Thanks! But unfortunatly its far from perfect this one. If I didnt ran outta pieces I would have redone alot more pieces. I think 6 more pieces were off badly. Look for them and you will find in the pictures.
But I must say that the stickers really did a good job! :)

Sometimes you can rescue pieces by adding a few layers of thick sheet and filing them back down into the correct shape.

Btw, nice work on the 3x3x7 too.
