German World War II super-heavy tank completed in late 1944, the heaviest fully enclosed armored fighting vehicle ever built. The first, turretless prototype (V1) was assembled by Alkett in December 1943. The Maus was too heavy to cross bridges. As a result, an alternative system was developed, where the Maus would instead ford the rivers it needed to cross. Due to its size it could ford relatively deep streams, but for deeper ones it was to submerge and drive across the river bottom. Kit has single-piece lower hull, multi-part upper hull with exterior detail, optional hatches, optional open top turret, boarding ladders, running gear (multi-part sprockets and road wheels), individual link track (workable), photoetch (upper hull grilles, brackets, latches and other exterior). Decals and painting reference for (3) tanks of Kummerdorf: First Prototype, Second Prototype and Opt.2 Second Prototype.
