Hello cubers.
The I-cubes are certainly one of my favourite type of cuboids. So in order for the collection to grow,
I made 2 more puzzles, the 7x7x6 floppy I-cube made from a mini 7x7 and the 4x4x3 floppy I-cube.
I must remind you that this kind of cuboids are very easy to made, and you will definitely enjoy solving them.
The puzzles are fantastic both in looks and turning.
You can watch video previews:

4x4x3: http://youtu.be/jrlXppw7kqc

Hope you like them:

Both look great.

Can somebody compile a list how many cuboids have been made by layer removal alone?

Thanks, glad you like them.

For example, should the 3x5x7 http://www.twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=26894 be included in this list?

Funny that you made the 4x4x3 I-Cube, because I think WitEden already beat you to the punch.

What an excellent idea!
I love them all.

- I can't see anything in common between those two 4x4x3, apart from the cube count.

To be honest, I don't have a camouflage 4x4x3, therefore I don't know if the bandaging or the internal mechanism is the same with my cube. But even if the 2 puzzles have the same mechanism I would rather have a collection that looks like that:
