After having folded this model from transparent paper, I decided this model probably worked better with opaque paper. So here's my fold from elephant hide. I think the picture still doesn't quite show the stars off as nicely as I'd like, and it's not as apparent that in the back you have honeycomb-like dents. But I can say that it is more stunning when you hold it in your hands and look at it.
Paper: hexagon with a side length of 9.75cm (from a 19.5cm square), elephant hide
