Hi,

This is the result of another collaboration between me and our member Chino.
I had the idea and asked Chino to implement it.
The idea was to build a skewb in shape of the "Medial Rhombic Triacontahedron" which is the first stellation of a rhombic triacontahedron:

Almost needless to say: The quality is perfect.

This puzzle allows me to post this image of a newly extended series. Please note the differences in size.

Some might wonder where the stickering scheme comes from. It was adapted from my other rhombic triacontahedrons:

Notes for myself:
Distance between opposite tips: 118 mm
Distance between adjacent tips: 63 mm
Weight: 252 g

Thank your Chino!

Perfect craftmanship, as allways.

First I thought you beat me once more with finishing of a new shape. Then I saw the word "medial"...

Look here:

That looks like a pretty complex build up, nice job!

Just to make clear again: All praise goes to Chino.
Thank you Dreiser and Dave.

@Claus: I did not beat you ...
