Geodesic Dome

Name of Model: The Shpleem Dome

I think you can figure out why this one is interesting. From the site given above:
The Shpleem Dome covers 16 48×48 stud baseplates. The dome itself is about 2.5 feet tall and 5 feet wide. The base is made up of 8 columns which each can have up to 2 corridor connections for a total of 16 potential corridor connections for other moonbase modules to hook up to.

When you go to a LEGO convention typically the larger models get most of the attention. Not good or bad, just the way it is. I wanted to make something large to take to shows that used the smallest amount of parts, so a geodesic dome sounded right.

We've been promised a "dome how-to soon" - I'll let you know if I see it.
