Not sure, don't think anyone has a Link-Belt with white masts though. Maybe they are temporary supports

Here is a rough estimate of what the tower will look like for the yet to be seen crane. the base sections may be custom made to allow a higher maximum unbraced height. image hosted on flickr

tg-1900 mast by PMadFlyer, on Flickr
view point is south looking north at the tower.

Switch all the lights on again.......

maybe us foreigners see things different ?

...........and as for the mast I really think they could engineer it well enough that they shouldn't need guy wires. I know the old WTC 1 mast also had guy wires but I don't see any on the ESB......c'mon, you can do it right !

These are the best render I have ever seen. I'm seriously thinking about printing them, putting them into a cover form and hanging them in my room
