Only one Maus was completed. A second hull had a test weight instead of a turret. The photo shows the one complete Maus after it was blown up.
The hull was completely shattered so the turret was placed on the other chassis to make one complete vehicle for Kubinka.
The project was cancelled very early in 1944 and thus there was never any possibility of series production. It was never the case that the war finished before it could get into service because it was cancelled. A devastating bombing raid set it back 6 months at least so they gave up on it.
