I'd love a bit more background on why you painted this model.

As far as I remember, the Maus was fielded in very small qualities, late in the war, was very slow and had a tendency to either wreck the roads it traveled on or to get bogged down in soft surface terrain.

Was it ever deployed by Romanian forces loyal to Germany or by post-war Romanian forces? Or is this just a nice bit of historical what-iffery?

Honestly. Just for fun and the occasional what if game of bolt action.

And no the Maus was never fielded by anyone and never saw anything except the testing grounds until the Russians slapped 2 together to make 1 and took it home for study and as a museum piece.

I doubt Germany would of ever given one to Romania though. They really didn't care for them as anything more than a scapegoat for the failure of Stalingrad.
