    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!
    1999.06.10 HELP !!
    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.
