I've TRIED to design THIS as a model, but both attempts went to the garbage BIN. Can SOMEONE help out?

I'm having problems designing the inner projector's shape. It is 9 triangular horns put together.
I think if I were designing that inside shape, I wouldn't make 9 3D pieces and glue them together. Instead, I'd make 9 flat pieces with a tab on the outside and a tab on the inside (and possibly a tab at the back) and glue the inner tab from 1 piece to the back of the piece next to it, around in a circle.
