'R0' dome build - 2.5 'Skin & squares'

Had to re-drill the three location holes in the base plate as my original ones id marked and drilled were slightly off. And to not cause confusion, I plugged the old holes with wood dowel.

Test fit of dome on R5's body.

I cut out two more 'squares' only two left to go now. Marked up a test piece for the recessed part of the 'squares'. Using the saw blade, I cut grooves in the rear face, this helps the wood to flex and hopefully not split. 

Marked out suitable holes on the dome for securing the Radar Eye. I then found some plastic discs just the right size for the screws I found to use.
Here's the Eye test fitted to the dome.
