After the first road test I’m really happy and I want to extend the sphere size.

I found this shot from the original movie

and measured the sphere sizes by Adobe Illustrator’s circle draw tool,

The top sphere ~280mm diameter but this is not a standard sphere size.
So I will use 300mm diameter foam sphere for this part.
You can find the spheres on  Ebay.

I’m looking forward to delivery.
