OK, here is another one of my "I hope this hasn't been made ideas :lol: it is made from 2 Dian Shengs and I'm very pleased with the results.

Here's the link to the auction.
http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Rubiks-Cube-Modification-Great-Quality-Mod_W0QQitemZ170463630685QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item27b06c955d

here's the video, sorry about the quality, I usually take the videos, but it didn't work for this one.

the puzzle turns smoothly, approximately the same as a Dian Sheng out of the box, but I am not trying to pass it off as perfect, just with all custom cubes, this has errors that I am not trying to hide. the stickering job is not perfect, but I think as a whole, it turned out amazing :D

Very nice work! I made one a while back and called it the Mirror Cube. :D

I'm glad to see a white version of it.

Simple!
Two bandaged 3x3x3's with signature B40D85A0.

BTW: The 5x5x5 hasn't been made yet.

Otherwise: Don't give up ENCuber. I remade 2 dozen puzzles before I found one new idea.

Perfect job!
It is possible also so to stick together cubes (top view):

All possible variants Siamese Cube and Prison Cube for a cube 3х3х3. The grey colour shows the stuck together elements. For Prison Cube the rigid connection is schematically shown.

Hrrm. You should have made up another topic for this. But since you posted it, I think it deserves an answer.
You have missed two siamese cubes:

And you have already recognized that you show us 2 versions of SRU.
If you want to see functional equivalents of all your variants, look here:

Hi, Andreas Nortmann.

I have not missed siamese cubes, and has shown what can be stuck together with other cube. At you the variants (RU) *2 and (FRU) *2 are given.
