My first attempt at a twisty puzzle shape mod is finished, and I am very happy with the result!

I went with a Half Truncated Cube as it seemed to be one of the nicer and easier designs to aim for as a first attempt.

If interested you can read a it more about my experience here:

And here are a few photos:

Love it. One of my first shape mods was based on this.

NICE!!!
The first mod I made was of a half trunc also!
Yours turned out a lot better though!
question: did you use caps or filling?
