"Globes" on a Truncated Octahedron

Before beginning, please read the assembly tips.

Instead of appendages to the hexagonal faces, the six square faces are set in single pieces for easier assembly.  You may find it easier joining all hexagonal faces first, leaving the square "windows" to be closed later.
