|1999.06.17|| SOMA153 The tallest 'diagonal' by Courtney is added
In his effort to help me, C.McFarren produced, what I believe is the TALLEST 'Diagonal' SOMA figure. (Figure 153) Check it out!
In soma addict 1.2 Eben Atwater. Concord. Mass, ask: "What is the tallest stable structure you can build with the 7 piece SOMA set ? ..."
Do you think he used all 7 pieces for this. ? What does the other side look like. ?
'A' show the structure from front, 'B' is seen from the side.
I can't figure this one out, so if anyone out there could either solve, or prove unsolvable, I would like to hear.
Actually it's NOT the tallest diagonal, A153 is taller.
