**Summary: **

The paper deals with cubic 1-variable polynomials whose Julia sets are connected. Fixing a bounded type rotation number, we obtain a slice of such polynomials with the origin being a fixed Siegel point of the specified rotation number. Such slices as parameter spaces were studied by S. Zakeri, so we call them Zakeri slices. We give a model of the central part of a slice (the subset of the slice that can be approximated by hyperbolic polynomials with Jordan curve Julia sets), and a continuous projection from the central part to the model. The projection is defined dynamically and agrees with the dynamical-analytic parameterization of the Principal Hyperbolic Domain by Petersen and Tan Lei.
