A dome of many colours (and parts)

I knew that making the dome in pieces would show the seams between the pieces. But considering I have some ~30 pieces all joined together I think the dome looks pretty good.
Here is a picture of the dome after I used acetone to join the pieces together. It is quite sturdy.

To see what things would look like I added the mesh, supports and the rings.

The struts are in place, supporting the rings

I am going to use a lazy Susan to rotate the dome. How exactly I am gong to do this I am not sure.
Mini-me neck structure is a little different so I probably will not do it the same way.

Finally I added the the dome to the neck and the rings.
