Hello forum, I wanted to show you a few more mods that I have finished recently.
I decided to post them all together like this because none of them are so
amazing that they deserve their own topic.
First (and my favorite) my fully functional 3x3x5

It was made by extending a circle cube on 2 sides and bandaging the rest. Gaps were filled with Milliput and then the pieces were sprayed with black gloss paint and silicone spray.
Turning is VERY nice, and I have solved it 3 times already by cobbling together my 3x3 and 5x5 methods.
One interesting fact is that the extended sides can still turn with a shallow center piece on the face. Picture below.

Now, my 1x2x3

I made this with leftover parts from the 3x3x5, because I wanted to.
Mechanism is hooks onto an inner 1x1x2
Milliput for gaps, spraypainted glossy black.
And my Siamese cubes

It seems to be a tradition here that everybody must make these at some point out of the lowest quality cubes they have
so I used dollar store cubes.
Not much to say about it really, but it looks nice and I have not tried to scramble or solve it (nor do I plan to)
Next, my Fisher's Golden cube sticker mod

I used a factory made silver golden cube to do this. I first sanded down the Meffert's and Tony Fisher logo on the two main pieces (It was painful to do) Then I sprayed the pieces with high quality silver spray paint. I then stickered all of the pieces with Cubesmith black vinyl, and I must say that I really like the end result.
When scrambled, it looks like some piece of industrial machinery (I love it).

And last but not least, my super-ultimate-perfect-awesome VCUBE collection
IMG_0243014.jpg [ 89.31 KiB | Viewed 1061 times ]
This consists of:
-Ghost Hand 2x2
-V cube 5
-V ucbe 6
-V cube 7
I know that some of these are KOs, but until V Cube produces a 3x3 and 4x4 I will stick to these cubes.
All of these cubes use V cube mechanism, even if some of them are KOs, so they all turn very well.
They are all lubricated with Olive oil and Lubix for the smoothest turning possible.
They have all been slightly sanded to perfection, and the corner stalks have been reduced on all of them.
The V cube 6 has been Pi modded, and NEVER comes out of allignment.
And, they all have cubesmith textured tiles, for the perfect final effect.
Over $200 worth of cubes and tiles, and an estimated 20 hours of work, and I am finally done with this perfect collection of V cubes
They just look, feel, and turn so perfectly. I love them, they are my babies

Thank you for reading all of this (I doubt you did) but I just wanted to share some of my work with you.
If anybody has any interest in any of these puzzles just PM me and I would be willing to build one (for a price of course)

Current Project: Replica RPK-74
Future Project: Possibly another master mental
I am now adding dummy cubes to my models to cross the 10% density threshold and save myself money big time.
