Hello all, today i've finished the puzzle, came out really well,
if only it were edible I would not hesitate to eat it :)

Cut the stickers by freehand took me less than 13 hours to build it i used an Original TomZ/Meffert's curvy Copter the turn is excellent and i'm really happy with the final result.

Photos in this post will be uploaded tomorrow, now, you could watch the finished puzzle in Marketplace & youtube;

P.S. Tomorrow i'll answer to the PM's and the replies.

Hello,
about a year ago I presented the First Curvy Copter HD and this is
the Second Curvy copter HD built with my new method of construction, from what I see it came out very well;

now I'm applying/cutting adhesives and tomorrow will be ready for video photos and the 3 days ebay auction;
hoping that the puzzle is to your liking
Best Regards
Rafael

The first stickered face represents 1 hour and 14 minutes* of work :? :o :roll: I think I'll need another day i'm sorry! I had forgotten how nice is to cut stickers to a CC HD :)
Best regards
Rafael

*freehand work

Hello Mr. Iaroslavski,
Thank you very much, i I had a look at sandpaper cube a great idea, while working once I thought of a 3x3x3 drill holes and insert inside of gauze soaked in perfume pink orange etc. to solve the cube with the smell but in the end I realized that I must have gone mad! :)
while I find the idea of ​​your very original touch is especially feasible, congratulations & best regards

Best regards

I'm sorry, I used the :| face as a serious face, and certainly i haven't grasped what were trying to tell me, so the answer is,
is just only the beginning, I have serious problems due to my old method of construction, "I tried to fight the windmills like Don Quijote", so, I had to develop a new method of construction that allows me to be more productive, not revealing differenceS between the old and the new method*

*thesis currently supported by one of my customers, me and youtube videos I think speak for themselves;

It is only the beginning because, i'm trying to build a strong library (puzzles, stickers and all that is needed to make them) in order to obtain immediacy in the application of an idea, I can assure you that arrive suddenly in the most unexpected situation :lol:
and sometimes it happens that as it comes it goes away, i tried with notes and doodles but it is not the same thing;

then hoping to be supported, I think I will could get to produce up to ???* different puzzles per month .

I can do more than this and with the right investment even more.

Thank you for reply, have a nice time.

Best Regards
Rafael
