Ok, So this is my second attempt at plastic sheeting, and I'm extremely happy with the results.

If there is interest, I will sell these on eBay because I would rather not let them go for a really low price.

If anyone wants them without bidding, I will consider any offer sent me.

Anyway, here are the pictures, let me know what you think.

Oh, and the 3x3x3 was made from a DianSheng and the 4x4x4 was with a normal sized QJ 4x4x4. Both turn exceptionally.

Let me know what you think, and for you master builders, any places I can improve my plastic sheeting technique.

The 3x3x3 is on the website in the custom modification section right now. I have not posted the 4x4x4 because I'm not sure what's a fair price.

Awesome! I love these. If you upload the 4x4x4 to the site I'll buy both for certain. ;)

Very impressive!

On the 4x4, would it be possible to slice each of the 4 centre cubies too (mechanism willing of course). That way you could sticker them like the corners and get yourself a super cube?

It would then look like an octahedron in a cube (like the sphere in a cube but with out the mech!)

Just an idea - but great work.

I will probably start an eBay auction tomorrow. Meanwhile, they will be on the website for about 24 hours, so if you want them, get them while you can :wink:
