Bandaged standard 5x5x5 cube by Tony Fisher and Anthony Greenhill.

By the time of this invention there was only one way to make a 3x3x5: Building it by yourself either completely by hand or by bandaging 5x5x5. For the second method there are two poosible bandaging schemes. This is one of them. It must be said that both bandaging scheme are no perfect emulation since they still allow movements impossible on a geometrically perfectly working 3x3x5.
Tony Fisher already made this variant in 1997 after a request of Norman Diamond although these variant were almost completely forgotten in the meantime. In 1999 Anthony Greenhill made his version shown here without knowledge Tonys work.
In 2011 Jose Manuel Garcia Mouzo presented another bandaged 5x5x5 (named Mess Cube 5) which differs from Greenhill's variant by two slice moves.
