The classifying space of the nth symmetric group $S_n$ is well-known to be modeled by the space of subsets of $R^\infty$ of cardinality $n$. Various subgroups of $S_n$ have related models. For example, $B(S_i \times S_j)$ is modeled by subsets of $R^\infty$ of cardinality $i + j$ with $i$ points colored red and $j$ points colored blue. More fun: the wreath product $S_i \int S_j \subset S_{ij}$ has classifying space modeled by $ij$ points partitioned into $i$ sets of cardinality $j$ (but these sets are not "colored").

My question: is there a geometric model, preferably related to these, for classifying spaces of alternating groups? [Note: since any finite group is a subgroup of a symmetric group one wouldn't expect to find geometric models of arbitrary subgroups, but alternating groups seem special enough...]
