Since this is kind of a "new" (at least to me) mod I post this here.
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=190217158866&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=009
Has anybody ever seen this shape?
I think it is a truncated Tetraminx.

Looks like Draken by Jurgen Brandt to me.

Definitely a Draken

The picture on this link is almost exactly the same angle as the ebay photo:

It says right on the auction, it's a Wedge-aminx. ;)

I wonder if this exact one was made by Jurgen? I'll ask the seller.

EDIT: The seller tells me it was his own build.

Thanks.
I have looked at J├╝rgens puzzles several times in the past but missed the resemblance.
