Chikungunya Picture

I noticed that given the recent Chikungunya epidemics, people are looking for a picture (and landing on this site). There is no picture of Chikungunya that exists; however there is a picture of Sindbis, which looks exactly like Chikungunya below:

This is a cutaway showing a slice of the virus so you can see all the cool stuff that makes it up. I am trying to understand how the inside of this puts itself together, the pretty stuff in the centre of the picture that are arranged in 5's and 6's.
