Product Description

Product Description

The basic design was ordered by the Waffenamt as a parallel development to the Porsche Maus in June 1943. It was the heaviest of the Entwicklung (E) series of vehicles, meant to standardize as many components as possible.In November 1942, Krupp suggested a design weighing 155 tons, compared to the 188 tons of the Maus - but still using the Maus turret. In December 1942, Krupp suggested a design weighing 130 tons which used many of the same components as the Tiger tank with Maus turret — referred to as the "Tiger-Maus". Weight savings were to be from thinner armour, and narrowing and shortening the vehicle.British forces captured the prototype in 1945, shown here on a trailer. After 1944, work continued at a very slow pace until canceled in favour of the Maus. The prototype had a HL230P30 engine due to the lack of HL234 units from Maybach. The HL230 was the same engine that was used on the King Tiger and Panther tanks. It was suitable for the 45-tonne Panther, underpowered for the 70-tonne King Tiger, and grossly under-powered for a 140-tonne design. The prototype would have been fitted with the 15 cm Kwk44 gun, though the final selection between the 15 cm Kwk44 and the 17 cm Kwk44 had not been made. The hull had sloped armor, typical of post-1943 design. Wheels were overlapped, similar to the King Tiger and Panther. The first prototype was never completed and was found by allied forces on the factory floor in 1945. The partially completed vehicle was removed by the British Army for evaluation and then scrapped.

From the Manufacturer

Super heavy tanks were designed as an alternative to the Maus, yet they still used a modified Maus turret with a plan to upgrade it to the 170mm KwK 44 later. Development of the E-100 started in June 1943 and continued steadily until 1944 when Hitler stopped the development of super heavy tanks. By the end of the war, they managed to nearly finish the first prototype, which was sent to England after being captured by the allies. This plastic model kit is an accurate representation of the military vehicle.

Very fun simple kit to build. Even though this kit is very detailed it is great for the beginner. The steps are simple to follow and the kit has surprisingly few parts. I also ordered the Krupp turret off ebay because I like the look of that better.

Changed out the barrel as the top prototype had the 17cm barrel rather than the 15 in this model. Also it's not exactly perfect as the turret is NOT the one on the proto, but still a very cool model.

Great kit although the tracks are a bit of a let down. At this price point I would expect link to link tracks instead of the rubber band tracks. Good engineering and fit. 100% improvement over the old Dragon E100.

I would just like to point out for anyone building historical models, the so called "Adler turret" boxed with this model, was never designed by the Germans, it's made up.
