Here's a very simple thing you can do with an old C4U Gigaminx you may not be using (especially if you bought the new Mf8): Cut stickers double the size of the normal ones and put them so the first two layers are effectively joined into one. The C4U gigaminx has very good turning on the second layer but lousy turning on the first layer, so by doing this you get a big megaminx which turns really good and it's easier to handle (at least for me, I have big hands).

Looks nice! Did you glue the pieces together or just attach them via stickers?

The stickers hold them together, it's not perfect but it does the job. Tiles would be even better.

Hey, that's an awesome idea; I may try it sometime! And to think I was seriously considering stuffing some M-80s in my C4U gig and nuking it! (Yes, it's that bad)

That's very cool. A very cool idea too. :)
