I think this may be the wrong place for this request, but I made this using CSG in the pro version.
Take no notice of the textures.

1) model window casements as separate prefab
2) model dome as giant, high-resolution sphere. Possibly, carve a slightly smaller sphere out from the inside, to make it two-sided.
3) cut out window openings using CSG subtraction
4) place a window pre-fab inside each opening (making the casements hide the edge of the dome).

1 Create a sphere of the proper size in the top view.

2 Select the Sphere object and then pick Vertex mode.

3 SHIFT select the lower half fo the sphere, and hit the delete key. YOu now have a doem that has an invisable underside.

4 Back in Object mode click Hollow and OK at the bottom of the screen. that will give you an inside to your Dome.

5 Now you have to make your window casing, which is above this tutorial, od youcan make a simple hole. Put a cube of the same size into the dome, making sure it goes all the way through.

6 SHIFT Select the Dome then CTRL SHIFT Select the cube.

7 Click the Subtract button and no you have a window hole. You can put in your casing if you made one or leave the hole as you window

The problem is that Bearrick is a LITE user and as such, he does not have the CSG subtract function. Deleting vertices and creating new polygons using edge extrude (for example) would be one way of achieving the desired effects. Smile

Here is one way to do it, using lite.
You may need to use your imagination to make it a bit better.
My advice is to buy the pro version, so much more power to model.

Hope it helps.
