    Welcome! That's a lovely piece. Hope to see it on the "It arrived!" forum before too long. Great to have this kind of talent lurking around here. Cheers!

    Looks awesome ! :cool:

    But the tentacles do seems quite fragile..
    Are those solid and which diameter ?
    Also what material is your aim, because glass or sandstone are probably way to fragile
    And the packaging department is probably no going to be happy ;)

    I can't tell from the model, but please make sure the center of mass is above your base, would be as shame if it toppled over..

    Anyway, can't wait to see more of your work !

    Cheers,
    Stijn

    Hmm... it wouldn't be the first time I miscalculated the center of mass. I did extend the back of the base pretty far out.

    Someday I want to buy this model in stainless steel, but for now I bought it in alumide.

    Thanks for the feedback virtox... I just bought your gyrocube today, can't wait to play with it!
