This picture is missing a few of the orange "buttons" on his the orange ring because I don't have the bricks under them yet. The red dots are placeholders for where the white buttons go on the triangles, but this gives you an idea of the panel.

The design has 6 of these panels that attach at the edges to make a sphere. They're kind of an ovalish shape and the "ends" of one will attach to the narrow sport of the next one. Six panels means I have 5 left to do.
Since both of the white ends are similar that means that the next step is basically an assembly line of the 10 ends of the panels, here's a picture of the beginning of that process.

That's all for now, but I feel like I'm on a Lego building roll!
