What type of Dome to build?

My first task was deciding what dome I wanted to build.  Two options are usually presented and they are:

  1. Styrene
  2. Aluminum

I decided to go with an aluminum dome since I felt it looked nicer than a styrene dome and was more authentic to me, however it does come with a price tag to it!  In Astromech.net forum under Aluminum Parts Runs, I located the thread for the 300mm Aluminum dome and forked out the $490 for this bad boy.  All I can say is I hope it is worth it!
