Actually, this update happened 10 September (last Monday) - I have a changedetection.com tracker set up for that page www.changedetection.co...k_log.html Before that date it did say "early in 2012." It now says "November 2014"

Tiger: A Modern study of Fgst.NR. 250031

The Research Squad are pleased to announce the release of Tiger: Modern Study of Fgst. NR. 250031, a complete photo study of the Aberdeen 712 Tiger tank. The Research Squad were given given special permission by the collection and Aberdeen Proving Ground Museum to fully document this important vehicle in order to create a photographic record for any future restoration work. This includes a full exterior walk-around, a complete documentation of the interior and also a detailed study of the engine compartment and engine.

To this end the knowledge and expertise of many contributors were brought together, not least of which were our two technical editors, Liejon Schoot and Rob Veenendaal, without whose massive contribution this book would not have been completed.

The book will comprise:
208 pages
+/- 690 images.
69 technical diagrams (including 27 selected re-mastered diagrams at A4 size)

This will include:
• a full exterior walk-around,
• a complete documentation of the interior
• a detailed study of the engine compartment.
• a history of the vehicle from capture to present date
• a veteran interview with the driver of Maj. Leuder
• a history of the vehicle from capture to present date
• a technical article by Liejon Schoot and Rob Veenendaal on the Vorpanzer design

On Sale now

Or any reviews? I looked and saw none. Tank enthusiasts are usually a fairly gabby bunch about new stuff.

So any idea what format the digital edition is in? Kindle?, EPUB?, PDF? It matters and I don't see it mentioned anywhere
