This is my fourth mod. I finished it late last night and didn't have time to post then, so here it is. I used the standard six colors. All of the stickers are handcut.

This puzzle is made with Dragan's vinyl. It is very high quality and the colors are excellent. I highly recommend his vinyl. He is selling it in the marketplace section.

Tell me what you think. :D

Nice mod!

For some reason it's a very "pleasing" shape!

The truncating and stickering is flawless. Very good job.

Your Puzzle is just perfectly made. Like your X-Cube, I can't see any imperfection! Keep Doing them like that!

Also, Thanks a million for the great Vinyl Demonstration!

It's really well done.

I too can attest to Dragan's vinyl quality although my latest mod is yet to be seen.

I like the symmetry.

It's just struck me that this is a truncated Ultimate Skewb (and I have a spare Ultimate).

That's great!
Nice built.
I guess it's a sticker variation of Thomases skewb mod... (It's in his signature).
He never gave it a name though.
When I made my "Envelope skewb", I also cut the corners.

This puzzle look professional :!: , I mean, the vinyl looks flawless :shock: , and the black plastic is so smooth and have a perfect surface :shock: I am really impressed on how you pulled this off :D , I hope you took some pictures of the journey making the puzzle.

Anyway, I am looking forward to see more puzzles from you, and I am thinking of trying out Dragans amazing vinyl. Very clear colors :mrgreen:

Thanks :wink:

Alex
