Hi Everyone,

Just finished up my latest puzzle mod. It is a Master Hexagonal Prism. The puzzle was made from a Meffert's 4x4 and all of the pieces were capped with ABS plastic sheet. The gaps between the extensions were filled with black Apoxie Sculpt. All of the stickers were machine cut using Oracal and Arlon Graphics Vinyl. I used Tony Fisher's method of adding a very small amount of super glue to the bottom of the tiny stickers on the white and yellow face to help make sure they don't come off when solving.

When I was close to finishing this puzzle I was a little concerned that Chino completed the same puzzle before I did. I was happy to see that he used a megaminx for his great puzzle mod. :D

I should have video up soon for this puzzle. Hope you enjoy.

Good job Apollo! I love it! Very elegant and pretty, yet a huge mess at the same time! :)

Nice work!

I wonder if different versions can be made, as with the 3x3x3 HPs.

I think you could get a couple of different of HP's. I know that I would like to make some HP's with different puzzles too (ie. Sq-1, 5x5, fisher cube, etc.)

The sanding on higher order puzzles are definately time consuming. 56 pieces X (3 sanding stages + 1 round of polishing). :? :D
