German Army

Krupp/Alkett Sd.Kfz.205 Maus   5.75"   2.5"

The Maus super heavy tank was a Porsche design. It featured 12" thick front armor, and was the largest tank ever built. Only two prototypes were actually completed before the end of the war. This model is based on the surviving example in Kubinka.

Krupp/Alkett Sd.Kfz.205 Maus

Designed to meet Adolf Hitler's personal demand for an "indestructible" 120-ton super-heavy tank, the Panzer VIII Maus was prototyped in December 1943. Though fearsome in appearance, the Maus nonetheless proved to be an impractical design; the specs called for a Maximum speed of 12mph but no engine could be found that propel the massive machine to greater than 8.1mph. It was also too heavy to cross bridges, so designers had to create a system allowing it to ford rivers. The Maus had a planned production run of 150 to 200 but it was too late to help Germany win the war-by 1945 only two had been completed.

The Easy Model "Platinum Collection" range presents highy-affordable, ready-made plastic models of military vehicles.

  • Molded plastic construction.
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
