    Question, What would be good to use to replicate the girder structure inside the domes.
    since i have had no luck with getting the paper model,ill build it from starch,
    i plan on doing the truss work from mini brass tubing. the domes will be the hardest part.wall1

    Well, the way the model makers made the original was to insert pins into a plastic dome, then wrap thin wire around them.
