Here's what I did with the second spare weenicons platypus. It'll hit ebay sometime tomorrow. Watch for links in the marketplace if you're interested.

I also took these earlier before I put colour onto the thing. The coloured pics don't do the puzzle the justice these earlier shots do. The background of the puzzle is the same, just the detailing added to the final puzzle.

I like this a lot. I think the gold looks better than the standard silver.

Thankyou all for the cool comments.

This is the first time I tried out gold on a borg mod. I wanted it to look different to all my other borgs, especially the last platypus borg.

It took about 4 or 5 attempts to get the gold the way I wanted. I now have a very multi-tone rubiks stand. :lol:

Once again, a great looking puzzle. The Borg puzzles always look fantastic. :D
