Clare, kudos this is a great representation of Stewart's model.

Peter Jepsen built versions: (he credits Michele Grisoni, who works for the Geomag company)

See that Peter's versions sidestep the steric problem with the panels by omitting them.

Thank you Karl. Those are cool pictures; I'll have to link to them in the page. I thought about leaving out the outer pentagons because of the difficulty, but somehow I find the model a bit less satisfying without them. With them missing you can see both inside the hole and into the interior of the solid (or however you say that -- are there better technical terms for those two ideas?). However, with the model still sitting around, mine looks like Peter's, because I can't leave those not-really-fitting pentagons in there.
