ATHENA skin - metal or fabric?

As just mentioned in my reply to Itkovians comment, I'm not sure what kind of skin to use for the ATHENA.
I could use a more ship-like metal skin like in these two samples:

Or a more blimp like fabric skin like in the two samples below.

For the all-metal skin, I would use .5mm thin plasticard, while for the fabric skin I'd use PVAed paper (or tissue) over thin ribs.
What would you think is looking better?
