The final Maus model in the Dragon collection is the V2 prototype. It differed in many details from the V1, and in mid-1944 this vehicle received a Daimler-Benz MB 517 diesel power plant and the first production turret at Kummersdorf. Tests commenced in September 1944. The turret boasted a 128mm KwK 44 L/55 main gun and a coaxial 75mm KwK 44 L/36.5 coaxial gun. There was also a 7.92mm MG for anti-aircraft defense. The V2 prototype was dispatched to Berlin for the defense of the Fatherland late in the war, but it broke down en route near Zossen. The crew then proceeded to blow it up.
This Dragon 1/72 scale model shows the V2 prototype undergoing testing at Kummersdorf with its impressive turret. It is beautifully painted and finished, and is set in an attractive diorama setting as it descends into a concrete water tank. Interestingly, the Soviets mated the V1 hull and V2 turret at the end of the war and took them back to the USSR for evaluation. This Maus can now be seen at the Kubinka Tank Museum. But for collectors, this Dragon model is a lot more convenient to display than the 188-ton original!
