I don't actually know if mine is right, but it looks it. The central sphere is about 16cm diameter (I used EMA hemispheres, so check their catalogue and go with the nearest to 16cm). The ring is about 28cm diameter. I found it hard to make and actually made it out of two straight acrylic strips, which I heated over a row of Bunsen burners and then bent them round a distilled water butt! I then stuck the two half rings together!

If it helps at all, here is my build.

good luck!
