Truss nearing completion

The front section of the truss has now been added. Note its immense size and span.
Rear view. The components in the foreground will be added to smooth out the truss to allow cladding to be added.
The first of the support beams attached to the super structure. We've concluded that the bottom point of the trusses will sit directly above the double thick columns with the sides attaching onto these support beams. The double thick column being the column in previous pictures that has a 'T' groove in it.
At the very centre of this picture, at the point where two visible white components converge, the attachment groove for the support beam on the super structure can be seen.
Finally, like a giant boat upside down in the dry dock, the first truss cuts a majestic sight.
