Well I was thinking the earlier pools we had here that were built like that were made from aluminum, but nowadays, those panels would be gone as soon as the installer turned his back.

we are trying to get away from the contractor and build pools on our own... but we backfill and wire the pool for the contractor.. but from the stage you see in the last batch of pictures there is only four steps left depending on what type of edge it is.. the last pool is a cantilever which means the concrete runs straight to the edge of the pool wall.. so on this cantilever edge pool there are three steps left

1-pour the concrete
2-vermiculite the bottom of the pool (vermiculite is a very pourus mortar mix with styrofoam balls in it)
3-then set the liner with the vacuum on to keep liner tight
4-add water

my pool has a coping edge

coping is the white metal you see around the top of the pool wall...

now if that pool was a coping edge you could go about finishing it anyway. but the way we usually finish in this order (i am goin to start right after the pool walls are set)

1-backfill pool and grade for concrete
2-install coping
3-vermiculite bottom
4-install liner with vacuum to keep it tight
5-fill with water
6-pour concrete

but there are so many ways to finish a coping pool it just all depends on when you can get people there and weather and all the other variables that affect construction

my two favorite mtl's are the case 420ct and the t190.. and for brute force and pushing power compared to the case the 190 is a beast!! but the 420 has hand controls and is alot more comfortable!! there are goin to be pro's and con's of any machine no matter what color, model, year, it doesnt matter..
