Imre thanks for all you great posts!!!

-RESPECT-


And many thanks for all the others like culwulla, fury and many others i forget to thank for ther fantastic updates.
They give my unforgettable moments of this supernatural process of a
supertower ever made by human mankind!

Now its nice to see the finishing touch. Almost ready to jack up the spire.

Thanks for the interior shots, i think it's gonna look elegant, but not as overdone as many projects in the middle east.
