When I saw the new Mefferts/Tony Skewb puzzle I thought it looked really nice ( I love Skewb mods) and wanted to make one for myself, I only had a Holey/Void Skewb 'another classic' available to make it with, and also didn't have any of the cool looking Mefferts vinyl, that makes the puzzle look even more attractive. I did use several flourescent vinyls, but they don't show up well in these pictures due to poor light, I'll take some new ones in daylight.
Great looking puzzle Tony.
Thankyou.

Thankyou :)

I took a few brighter images today, and wanted to add that it was stickered with 8 colors.
On the 6 main 'X' Cross faces I used -
Flourescent Green,
Flourescent Pink,
Flourescent Orange,
Bright Blue,
Red
& Yellow.
These colours were then all used twice on the puzzle in the recessed areas but not touching any of the same 'X' or cross faces with the same colour,
I used an additional Aqua & Light purple to finish off the last 2 unstickered recessed triangles.

When scrambled it looks particularly attractive and confusing.
