I show it as a curiosity.
This was a prototype.
A simple 2x2 although could do with more turns.
Never see the light.
No more words.

This would be a perfect 2x2x4 mod.

Not saying yours isn't perfect, as always, wonderful work.

nah! a perfect 2x2x8 that is!

again I love seeing stuff like this. It makes me think of all the ideas I had years back about other objects RUBIK-alized! namely warhammer miniature model looking.

also, a cube with a whole miniature world theme on each face. like water, desert, fire, wind, earth and forrest <3 :roll:

Wow! That looks great! It could be called St. Steven's Tower though, as Big Ben is the actual bell inside the tower, and the tower's called St. Steven's Tower. Nevertheless, it looks awesome!

It's actually called the (Westminster) Clock Tower, the name St. Stephen's Tower didn't exist till Victorian times. :D

This is a great puzzle that would be amazing if it was actually a 2x2x8. :D

Wow, this looks great! But I'm surprised you didn't try this:

For anyone wondering: this is the world's oldest (Roman) lighthouse, La Torre de Hercules, in Chino's home town of La Coruña. :D

Hello, I am pleasantly surprised that you know "La Torre de Hercules", the reason why I have shown here the Big Ben is simply for the fact that it is practically a monument known throughout the world.

That does not mean it's the first I've made this style, indeed, the first was "La Torre de Hercules", but for now do not show here, because I am remodeling some details about the puzzle.

Only a picture:
