In August 2022 Max Burg reports:

MW758 has been moved into storage at Haverfordwest Airport in Wales while we build our workshop. 

We are very much hoping to go in the airworthy direction though with a 3350 up front instead of the Centaurus.

In February 2023 Max Burg reports:

Just a quick update. The required space was not made available for us as promised at Haverfordwest so we have moved the Tempest to the South Wales Aviation Museum at St Athan near Cardiff. It’s an excellent environment she will receive some immediate conservation care.

She is looking better after being bolted back together!
