Hi,
First I want to say that I'm new here on the forum so hello!
I want to show my first mod on this form. It's a 4x4 half truncated cube.
I made this cube because I was really exited about mod's and stuff so I thought well I'll make a half truncated cube. But I had no old 3x3 so I made I from an old Rubik's brand 4x4.

I cut the pieces using a hacksaw. After cutting the pieces I filled them with milliput.
For the stickers on the side I used 3x3 half truncated cube stickers and I cut them the right size, for the normal faces I just used 4x4 stickers.

The cube has little imperfections but you only see them if you look really close.
It turned out very well I think for a first mod.

Welcome to the TP forums Max. That's not bad for your first mod, very clean and neat. If you're into modding this is the place to be. Hope to see more of your work soon.

Thank you Gus,
I'm thinking of making a 4x4 super barrel and some other great mod but I'll have to wait until my birthday (I'm just a kid so I don't have to much money).
I've already made a 3x3 half truncated cube and some little other cube. You can see those cube on my YouTube channel.

Just a bit of advice from someone who very rarely mods, the corners look like they puff out a bit, to fix this you could put sandpaper down on a flat surface and sand the corners.
Other than that this is a really good looking puzzle!
