This static display model of the Lost Turrets E-100 was built using the 1/35 Trumpeter E-100 kit and the Rhino Krupp Turret kit. Numerous other modifications have been made to the kit to bring it into line with the in-game vehicle. The vehicle is shown with the 128mm Kwk 44 L/55 gun. This tank has been finished in one of the World of Tanks Desert Schemes using Vallejo acrylic paints.

Dimensions: 13" x 6" x 4.5".


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. The proposed designs were the E-5, E-10, E-25, E-50, E-75 and finally the E-100.

In March 1944, Adlerwerke company from Frankfurt am Main submitted blueprint 021A38300 for a super-heavy tank called E-100, after the tank was proposed in April 1943 along with the other Entwicklung series vehicles. According to the blueprints, the tank would be armed with a both a 149 mm gun and a 75 mm gun. Two types of engines were proposed: one was a 700 hp Maybach HL230, with a transmission and turning mechanism borrowed from the Tiger II. The estimated top speed was 23 km/h. The second variant would have a new 1200 hp Maybach engine and a top speed estimated at 40 km/h. The design had removable side skirts and narrow transport tracks to make rail transport more viable. This design was very similar to the original 'Tiger-Maus' proposal, but had larger 900 mm diameter road wheels and a new spring based suspension rather than the original torsion bars. A new turret was designed; intended to be simpler and lighter than the Maus turret. Permission was given to produce the tank based on the potential use of the E-100 as a tank destroyer with either a 15 cm StuK L/63 or 17 cm StuK L/53 gun.

In July 1944 Hitler ordered the development of super heavy tanks to stop. Work on the E-100 continued at a very low priority with only three Adler employees available to assemble the prototype..

The first prototype was never fully completed and was found by the 751st Field Artillery Battalion of the American forces in April 1945.
vehicle was taken by the British Army for evaluation and then scrapped in the 1950s.
