The best way to find out how it works would be to take a real Rubix Cube apart.

I know how a real Rubiks cube works, but how would you make it out of knex?

You may have to make it bigger than a real Rubix Cube.

That sounds interesting but there is one flaw: How would you make it the right color? I suppose it could be spray-pianted but what's the point of doing that??

Maybe taping construction paper to each square would work, even though it would probably come off easily. Or you could find some other way to distinguish each side from the others.

Make a pump action or slide action rifle/shotgun. One with a 100% reliable mag, of oodammo. That shoots over 70 feet.

None of the assault weapons are good enough for me, or they take too many pieces, or have unclear instructions.
