Here's an interesting size comparison, both 1/35 ...

The Maus turret is actually larger than the Stuart!

Great to see this beast. Thanks.

 

 

Of course, the Maus might have been a formidable opponent if it hadn't been for the extremely slow speed of the SdKfz 9921 ausf Z (240 Tonne Reinforced-Road-Laying Vehicle) that was designed to trundle along in front of it.

 

And I wonder why they didn't camo paint the Maus to look like a farm building, or a small copse?

 

Rearguards,

Badder
