I really like this! very cool idea!
It's realy your thing to do these kinds of cubes :)

It reminded me of this idea I have

maybe I will do it myself.. But it would be nice if you made it!

"Element Cube"

Each color represent en element or clima theme.

White - Ice
Blue - Ocean
Yellow - Desert
Red - Vulcano
Green - Forrest
Orange - ???
or
Black - Death
or
Multicolor - Life

This one has been my dream 3x3x3 since I began cubing. And I think it has a market potential.

If it is your dream, you really should make it yourself. It's very satisfying.

I will make it myself at one point. Could you recommend some paint to use? I tried painting a cube once, but the paint quickly chipped.. :(

Its just that when I want to do some work, I'd rather want a new shape.

But it would be really nice to see your take on it! :)

Games Workshop paints work great. They're usually used for Warhammer. I used to do Warhammer, and they have a large variety of paints. Very high quality, and at a decent price.

thanks, I have a whole bunch of warhammer stuff. It was actually my plan to make each face like a warhammer base. ehhm.. wait, I think I found the motivation again - to build the cube that is ;)

Navel camo is my favorite. It seems so odd to think that they're trying to hide a huge ship, but if you've seen videos of it, it's amazing!

Razzle Dazzle camouflage wasn't about hiding a ship. They quicky realised you can't hide a ship against the relative flatness of the ocean. Instead they worked on schemes that made it difficult to deturmine one end of the boat from the other, and made it difficult to predict range, speed and heading. 3 things you needed to torpedo one. Here are a few examples:
