Hi All,
I'm a fan of big puzzles, and before I was a member of this forum I had made a few common 3x3x3 mods using the large 10cm foot cubes just for fun (group picture below), so after making a Ghost Cube recently I thought I'd make a giant version of that too.

Pieces were capped with 1.5mm white plastic sheet, and any visible joins and seams, where extensions were added, were filled with superfine white milliput.
Thankyou :)

Size : 108mm
Weight : 440gm

Thankyou everyone, appreciated.

@Thedutchcuber
Sorry I really couldn't say how long it takes to make, I never clock the hours, I often build 'here and there' when I can, and often have more than one puzzle project on the go at the same time.

Very impressive. Beautiful puzzles and amazing craftsmanship.
I would be very interested in your techniques if you are willing to share any tips.
