Hi all.

Thanks for the pics tThye.

Fiuner and Desert Diver - Great pics as well. keep 'em coming and welcome to the forum.

Imre I was thinking the same as Desert - Do you mean BMU - Building Maintenance Unit.

Still no change at the top of the pinnacle. What in tarhooty are they doing up there ?

The top platform has to be close to being erected ... It will be good to see it up there as the jacking should begin shortly after that. They will have to start soon if they want top out to be before years end.

The second one looks slimmer, because it's taller.
Spire looks bit taller on second one too...or is that just an illusion.

The spire is longer on the right, but the one on the left is to scale, but i thought it looked abit "stumpy" if that makes sense, so i decided to push the limits to see how far i could make it whilst still bearing in mind the proportion to make it look good. ~860m is what i got.

it really doesnt look "stumpy", maybe a little bit from that angle. but i bet u if we got a shot at the same height and from a different angle it would look really SLENDER

I know what you mean, although tthye is certainly posting new photos everyday when it seems like he's posting same pics day by day. LOL

Cheers tthye
