Pioneered Millenium Dome
This beautifully drawn and well explained project is modelled after the Millenium Dome in London. The instructions explain the whole process of construction, including the procedure to make the net which supports the plastic sheeting forming the dome. The net alone requires some 1700 feet (625m) of rope, so this is not a small project, but looks well worth the effort.
This project comes from the UK-based Pioneering Made Easy website, which has many original and unusual projects (I'd be particularly impressed to see a troop build one of these)
