AltinD, I used four of the photos you posted to create a photomerge. It's not seamless, but it looks pretty good.

That's the reason why I took them in sequence.

Thanks. I took them from three different positions and going from position 1 to 2 involved walking some 200 meters and back, then I drove from 1 to position 3.

It was some 41 degree but it wasn't humid and I had with me a bottle of Getorade.

That is so cool. I wonder, though, what its final height will be...?

Is it just because I visit this thread all the time that it seems the cladding isn't progressing very fast?
