Researching costs for a reconstruction

This post refers to plans to re-construct Tom’s ‘ Dome Of Human Kindness’ dome that dated from 1972. Click HERE to see a visualisation of the structure.

On 27th March 2018 Tom collected the first re-stretched triangular canvas of the 18 that would make up the reconstructed dome. This can be seen in the background of one of these shots. This is part of a ‘pilot’ study for the whole project so that Tom could work out all the costs prior to the start of a ‘crowdfunding’ scheme once . This was  a historic moment for Tom.

The approx 1/5th MDF scale model on the table in the foreground  enabled Tom to work out the angles of the bevelled edges of each panel.

Darren of T.P. Timber explained the need for the model to calculate all the angles for the bevels.  Here he is in the shot to show the scale of the approx 1/5th scale model.

 Here’s a shot of the interior of the model.
