I spent some time on the Jacques Cartier Bridge this afternoon to take photos of the setup (which wasn't much it seemed). The link is at the bottom of my post. Photos can be sent out to you guys (with an e-mail which is firstname.lastname@example.org) in better quality. From the look of the setup on Ramp 1 (which isn't completed however the mortars are placed on the blast shield, it looks like a fairly average sized setup. More pictures are posted on my blog: http://pyromight.blogspot.com.
Here are the photos:
All photos were taken with a Cannon PowerShot SD630.
STL did tell me that he had trouble taking photo's on the Ferris Wheel, so I decided to walk for a good 10 minutes to get a shot of the setup from the bridge.

Paul, is it possible to fix the topic name to setup instead of set? Thanks

When did I said that, mind you ?!
I just said that the official policy forbids using a camera in the Ferris Wheel (or any attraction for that matter) and I've managed to fly under the radar by staying discreet
You may wish to reduce the size of your picture somewhat (you may link to the full resolution version if you like) in order to show it on the forum.
EDIT: I'd say that it's normal for the ramps to be empty like that. That's why I go on the Ferris Wheel the day of the display, and even then everything's not installed yet (I can name the Titanic set piece and the waterfall last week).

Hehe. I just didn't want to blurt out any info about that. You never know, maybe Paul Csukassy is reading this post at any moment.
On Saturday afternoon, I will go back on the bridge and take some more photos. Hopefully this might give the viewers a little more viewage of what's going to happen that evening.

Sweden only received their container today, and anyway, the first days are for premontage majorly, so for sure you will not see much on the ramps...

I think that Paul Csukassy has more important things to do than policing who goes in the Ferris Wheel to take pictures
This is a Six Flags policy, I don't think that the fireworks organization has anything to do with it. Moreso, I don't see why they would prevent the people from going in the Ferris Wheel to take set-up pictures, as you proven that one can have an even better vantage point from the Jacques-Cartier bridge.
I would really like to see some cop telling me that it's illegal to take pictures from the bridge (a public road) !

Yes I saw their container right in front of the blast shields. I think what Sweden will give is more of a promising display and might be fighting harder than we thought to win a Jupiter.
Here's a distant shot of Ramp 1:

I just said that the official policy forbids using a camera in the Ferris Wheel (or any attraction for that matter) Parks are scared that people may take inappropriate photos - plus there's a danger of people losing their cameras or injuring themselves if they don't keep their arms inside the rides, though I doubt this is an issue on the Ferris wheel. I know some people have a "hobby" of exposing themselves for the rides' "official" cameras ... though Disney don't now scan for these: http://www.nydailynews.com/money/business_travel/2009/05/06/2009-05-06 _disney_parks_stops_scanning_for_topless_riders_on_space_mountain_towe r_of_terror.html
And for the setup photos in general, there's really nothing to see at this point during the week as the first two days are usually spent on pre-montage. Sometimes the 1.1g shells are installed, but not always.

I will be filming the entire display and posting it on my YouTube channel. Off to the promising looking display
