Super Tank Maus
Posted by Razzie43 on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 9:53 AM

Hi all,this kit is from 1992 but i buy it this year Hmm

No figures,no photo etch material...fast build,less parts.

i'm a little dissapointed at this box!!

 

But the Maus box is hardly to find where is live.(northpole  Wink)

I don't wanna start with the 48 wheels..so i search for my puttytube to get a nasty iron plate...the drillmachine came also handy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I buy the book to get deeper into the project...cost more then the dragon kit!

Hey Razzie, it's good to see you around again. 

And good job with the rusty worn-out look. 

Though I think you should add a figure or three to show how giant the Maus was!

Lol, yes they do give a good impression of how gigantic the Maus is!

Good luck with your E-100 

 

I was looking around to make some natural mud...and Tamiya has diorama paint in a jar.

Then i try some Ak mud to splash over it and this are the results : 

And i wanna say the mud is also natural like on the B/W pictures : 

 

Becos some people gonna say ; 

The Maus is 180 ton,driving 20km/h on road so how can it be that the mud is so high on the tank?

 

Look for youself :)

 

 

Even the mud came inside the tank...

Nice job.

You would be surprised at how high up mud can get and where it can get into, even when driving at low speed.

 I like the raw look of it. It looks like it came off a late war factory.

I like the overhead shot of the line up. Even the Tiger II looks small with the Maus there.

Ditto

Is that an E100 next to the Maus?  If so, I didn't realize it was nearly as big as the Maus!!
