Four Stellations of the Truncated Icosahedron

The truncated isocahedron has an interesting (and long) stellation series. Here are some of the stellated forms of this polyhedron which I find particularly interesting and attractive, starting with its 41st stellation.

This one is the 42nd stellation:

Jumping far ahead in the series, this is the 126th stellation:

And, finally, the 148th stellation.
