The cap was made from sheet plastic. It has been glued on in such a way that it could be removed if it needed to be removed. If you aply enough force in the right places you can pop it, but it is difficult. If a twisty puzzle member is to win this, I would like to know, Thanks, Tanner Frisby.

Great job, did you have a really hard time building this? I'd love to give it a try.

I started over a year ago. That is how hard it was. :wink: The hardest puzzle I have ever built. Have you ever noticed how there are almost 20 4x4x5's but only 2 5x5x4's? I can name 3 huge puzzle building genuises who have started but never finished. The corners were the trickiest. They took me more than a week.

Is this just "unhiding" the 5x5x5 in a 4x4x4 or "rehiding" it on a 5x5x5?

That is truly awesome! Well done. Just a shame that I know I don't have a chance in hell of winning it. :(

Excellent job and quite an achievement. I never dared to build one.

I know you mean well, but I always think it's funny when people use just in such a sentence. :-)

Close, but this was just a 2 year building challenge that has only been performed once before. However, this is essentially "unhiding" the 5x5x5 in a 4x4x4.

If even just one bidder will just do justice to this puzzle, I won't be able to buy it.

:D Very nice !!! Great work !
I am modding an 455 too, but not finished.

It's very interesting that you use a Chinese character as your logo.
Do you know what's the meaning? :mrgreen:

It's a combination of TF, like APJ said, but I'm curious as to what it means now.

That character in Chinese pronounces "Xia" and means "down" :)

On topic, I'm going to look into this. It seems like an extremely complicated, hard to do mod that sounds like I'd have fun doing. :D

This is an amazing master-class work! You should be proud of yourself, Tanner.

At least I am proud to have some of your puzzles. :)
