Such a clean, sharp-looking build! This sort of handiwork really amazes me.

Thanks! It's only my second mod, so I'm pretty proud of the result. Still room for improvement down the road though.

Experience matters, but attention to detail is often something that is more of an innate aspect of personality. So good results early on is a great sign :) Jin spoke along these lines here.

Thanks! Since I'm mostly still new to modding, everything feels like a learning process in technique and proficiency. Hopefully with more experience I can learn to be more efficient and still get good results.

Here's a video demo of the puzzle. First time I've made a video with this camera so please forgive the quality.

I admire such handmade puzzles very much. Very well done!

I do not agree with those who have said in the past that hand modded custom puzzles are dead, because there are so many new mass-produced puzzles on the market.
There will be always a niche for custom puzzles.
Why should your satisfaction be less, because of other puzzles being mass-produced?
I feel that you are proud of your work and this is good!
