the wooden structure

Another solid step for the project, we added most of the basic structure. The guys did great and finally this looks as if it could work.

Thanks a lot to Alex, Christian, Kristian, Mac and Nick. Great week, good progress! Project paused for the weekend, we're waiting for more material to come, so next update will follow next week ;)

running out of material

Finally a nice day, and we managed to work quite fast on the last missing parts. At least we were faster then material lasted, so we had to stop laminating in the early afternoon, as we ran out of resin :(

Reordered, but this will take about 5 days to be here …

Anyway, work continues as we hafe to work on some shuttering tomorrow.

more rain and our plan B

It continued to rain, but we decided to not let this stop us … plan B is to work under a tarp as long as necessary. So hopefully the weather will get better tomorrow, or at least stay dry for longer - fingers crossed!

weather forecast: wait!

Started to build the biggest piece of the statue, but just as we were about to finish the first layer, it started to rain …

So we have to wait for the next dry day to continue

sealing the mould and preparing for more

Building the statue ist scheduled for next week, so we had to seal the concrete surface of the mould. So thanks to Nick we finished that in no time today - a fresh coat of Sikafloor ProSeal.

And me moved some material to prepare the plattform for the statue. I'm sure the final location will look ace!
