The assembly process will seriously get under way on the 1st of June with the completion of painting. Most of the components required for the 40 class are on hand but there are still some to arrive. Baring any delays in the delivery of these outstanding components the factory expects to be able to dispatch the 40 class in the first week of July. This should see the 40 class shipment arrive at Port Botany in the first week of August.
More updates later.
