Sorry - we meant to get an update out a few days ago but it slipped my mind.
The castings for the front casement armour as well as the mantlet arrived last week.

Once the jigs were built we started machining the castings - starting with the casement armour. So far we are about a third of the way through.

At this time we estimate that shipping of the Jagdtiger will start at the end of June. With the weight of the kit and the number of boxes, shipping will then continue into July.
