I am proud to present my 7x7x7 hexagonal dipyramid. After I made my V-6 HD I was not planning on making a V-7 version, however someone brought up the idea. So I chopped up my last V-cube.

Pieces were filled with Super-fine White Milliput. Stickers were hand-cut from Cubesmith vinyl.

short video here, i am having a lot of difficulty with youtube atm, better video may come in a few days.

That's amazing! Incredible work.

Now to complete the family we just need to make one from the 12th cube.

Remember we've shortly got up to the 11x11, and then Oskar's 17x17...

Back to the mod, that is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! Words cannot describe that beast!

EDIT: Dam you, GamerCuber101, you beat me to my comment!
