COMMENTS

It can be shown that 19683= (1+9+6+8+3)^3 = 27^3 is the largest such number.
Numbers of Dudeney.  Philippe Deléham, May 11 2013
If a number n has d digits, 10^(d1) <= n < 10^d, the cube of the digit sum is at most (d*9)^3 = 729 d^3; if d>6 this is strictly smaller than 10^(d1) and cannot be equal to n. See also A061211.  M. F. Hasler, Apr 12 2015
