Hey everyone,

Just finished up my latest puzzle mod. I call it the Ironman Canada Puzzle. This was made for my father who has competed in Ironman competition. He has wanted some of my work for sometime so I designed this puzzle for him.

The puzzle was made with a 2x3x3 that was manufactured by Lan Lan. All of the pieces were capped with polystyrene plastic and the gaps between the extended pieces were filled with white Apoxie Sculpt. All of the stickers were cut with my vinyl cutter using Arlon Graphics Vinyl.


Here is the link to the video for those who would like to see it. Hope you enjoy

Some EXCELLENT puzzle there! I always liked the Canada type of flag,
and this is a puzzle which perfectly uses this theme. In fact, though
there have been other Canadian type puzzles before, I believe this
one is the best!

Well done Apollo!

:)
