As I mentioned a a while ago ( :shock: almost a year and half ago! - and it was already a long time then! :lol: ) I had dyed a ball.b but needed to order stickers to complete the Jurgen Brandt mod.

The release of Calvin's Megaminx Ball pushed it even further to the back burner, but luckily I waited for some reviews before buying and when I discovered the 12 color version had black stickers I knew I was going to have to order new stickers anyway so I might as well do it for this puzzle.

I ordered from Oliver and I am delighted with the results! (Thank you Oliver!) The stickers colors are much more vibrant than the usual stickers that come on puzzles. I think it is now my most beautiful puzzle and was definitely worth the wait!

Very nice, you got those stickers to fit the curved surface perfectly!

Wow the 12 colour look great, I made my 6 colour variant a few months ago. believe it or not it worked out cheaper to build my own than buy one.

I'm happy that I could help you with it, It is always a good practice for me to create a new template from scratch (especially for curved surface puzzles)!
As I see on the images, the corner stickers are not as perfect as I wanted it, but close enough.

P.S.: I can't wait to see your other "new" puzzle... :wink:

Nice! If I could find another another cheap ball.b I'd do that too as I much prefer the thicker edge pieces than the thin ones on Calvin's version (I know you can mod one from a megaminx but I can't :lol: )

That might be a while as I am waiting for parts to arrive from my designer, on who there is no time pressure! (although hopefully it won't take as long as this one :lol: )
