    It seems from the first picture that they are uniting the modules. This is always a critical time, when the modules must fit almost perfectly well.

    The second picture must be older, cause i dont see the second module.

    I've checked the pictures available on this forum ,and there is no image that showing the cranes lifting anything.



    It is surprising, the crane on the Ford building spent best part of its time to lift modules.

    So they building very slowly, or there is no building activity for a while.

    They're taking their time as this is a first for them (i.e. ship and building method).

    Actually, the second photo is a repost from a photo posted on october 9. I havent been able to find the first photo in the older photos, but i wonder if it is a repost too.

    A new image of the first Type 003 aircraft carrier under construction.

    Are these already segments of the deck?

    What we can see so far is the underwater ship. The structures on the site next to the modules may be for the gallery deck. But I suspect, these are assemblies for the 2nd to 4th Deck.

    This photo seems to suggest that they have made little progress since july. The amount of modules looks to be the same. I wonder if they have already united those modules already in place.

    What i find weird is why those semi-assembled cranes keep appearing and dissapearing from the photos that are posted in this forum.

    They are too narrow yet to be the flight deck, and that even could be the hanger deck floor.
