The dome has arrived!

On 11th February¬†the box with the dome arrived. I had to first pay off the VAT here in the UK and re-direct it to my work address, but it’s here and the excitement is pretty big. Let the journey begin!

Found my dome

My lucky day.¬†Browsing through the Part Junkyard on the Builder’s Club website (astromech.net), I’ve come accross a member that offered a 300mm aluminium dome for sale. This one was from the 2011 run. After a few messages back and forth that deal was done and off it went on his side in the US. The fellow builder even threw in a Deutsch base plate (see photo). That was highly appreciated. Thanks again!
