Perfect example of them honoring their leader to something similar.

I found it today. A rare photograph from the times of construction of the tower.
Have it been posted earlier?

I'm sure that no one has ever posted or seen one before, right?

There was a picture of a Ryugyong model posted about half a year ago or more in this thread... In the background there were some small pictures of the superstructure's actual construction. They were very small and blurry, however.
Apparently, in the earlier stages, the core was built up before the wings instead of all at once.

But finding any construction pics is about as rare as finding a diamond!

Interesting photo of the Ryugyong from about November, showing some lights on. Not sure if it's real, though.

I know what you mean about it not being 'real', those lights in the top left look slighly off... its like their too regular or something...

Maybe if they doctored it with a yellow that wasn't so bright, they could've gotten away with it.

It just looks like some hdr or post processing. Many photos of every skyline in the world look like this. Given how many known to be real photos show fully lit buildings, we know that this photo can be real. Our quickness to make accusations says more about our political brainwashing and nationalistic combativeness than the actual likelihood of this being fake.
