Hi, I'm new at modding, and these are my mods I did during the summer when I'm not working.

Image
Master Skewb (Tony Fisher's magnet solution)
And thank you, Eitan, for the tips on the use of right magnets.

Image
Mid turn of the Master Skewb

Image
HL's cube (I thought no one had done this before but I saw it on Rubikvn) original design by Hoalong, and Bump Ghost Cube (not really, but one layer is half the size of the whole cube, it has a skewbish turn) original design by Adam G Cowan

Image
Checker Board pattern of both of them. I thought the Ghost Cube was a failure, so i fudged a little on the finishing.

Image
Icosaminx and Hexaminx(actually this is my first mod ever, I lost the auction of the Curvy Hexaminx, so I had to go make my own)

Image
5x5 Mastermorphix, original concept by Tony Fisher, first built by dannyb21892 [Edited, it was attributed to the wrong modder. Sorry about that.]

Image
Master Axis Cube, Axis concept by Adam G Cowan, 4x4 variant first built by Jesse or Cubervietnam (published in the same week I believe, don't know who finished first)
And I guess I made this before AJ finished his second master axis for Rox!

Agreed, you are not a beginner at this... They're awesome! Can I ask where the magnets go on the Master Skewb?

If you were a beginner when you started, you certainly aren't now. Those are some serious mods that even experienced modders would hesitate to do.

Well done!

Thanks, guys, I was myself surprised how well they turned out since I have not done any craft before.

The magnets are around the base of the corners, slightly higher than the magnets in the square pieces around them so they won't extend out too much. I was afraid the magnets may fall out after awhile, so I internalized the magnets which is why you can't see them from the pictures.

Probably not, even if I accept this deal, I can't make any more mods for now since I can't bring my dremel and saw and other tools into my dorm. If you really want one, you should ask a more experience builder, mine pops a lot.

@AJ, mine was actually finished a month ago, I took the pics just now before school work kicks in. Btw, I am a big fan!

Where did you learn to make those? Was there a specific online tutorial that you followed?

Since these are all shape mods, knowing how to cut is sufficient to start modding, the rest is quite intuitive. I saw the hexaminx and 5x5 mastemorphix skeletons on Judochiou625's blog, I saw jesse's axis cube building thread on mf8, and that's how I started cutting my cubes. Extending and capping with plastic sheets is very intuitive.

Wow :shock: These are freakking awesome! :mrgreen:

I would consider beginner's mods to be stuff like fused cubes, bandaged puzzles, etc. My first mod was converting an Impossiball into a Brainracker, second mod is a [url]Bandaged Megaminx[/url]. No way these are your first attempts at modding, but if so, congrats to you! :P

Great work, and so much of it!
I look forward to your next school break when you can be reunited with your Dremel ;)

Hey i apologize if i'm wrong but i'm fairly sure i was the first to build the 5x5x5 morphix.
Somebody correct me please if this isn't right.

My original Ultramorphix thread

Great mods by the way. Beautiful!
