This is my Rex-Cuboctahedron shape mod. The stickers are hand-cut.

Looks great.

It seems I once made a bandaged version: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9581 :-)

Black puzzles rule!

Wow! The Rex-Cuboctahedron looks really beautiful! - one of those puzzles that looks even better when scrambled!

I may have to attempt this one sometime - is it as "easy" as it seems or is it more complicated?

Thanks for the compliments.

@Thomas: Your puzzle has half of the axes. But the building of your puzzle is more difficult. :D

@Zzupler: It's an easy mod.
