Best online source for hemispheres?

Post by novahobbies » Mon Aug 10, 2015 2:58 pm

I thought there was a sticky for this, but I haven't been able to find it (and my Google-fu is very weak today apparently!) but can someone direct me to a good inexpensive source for some clear 1" diameter plastic hemispheres? Amazon used to be a good source, but the smallest I can now find is 1.5 inches....and the minimum plastruct order I see is $20, which I'd like to avoid if possible. Any help would be appreciated!

Would something like these be what you're interested in?

These look great!
