History of Elefant no. 150100

I'm currently working on the Dragon Elefant vehicle no. 150100 kit . It's paint scheme is overall red primer with dark yellow wheels and barrel. It is heavily graffitied by the factory workers. There is a picture of vehicle no. 150096 in The Modeler's Guide to Jagdpanzer, pg. 61. The caption states that 150096 was one of several vehicles used to train drivers and crews at the Nibelungen factory. I am wondering if 150100 may have been one of those vehicles. If anyone could relay any history on this, I would greatly appreciate it.

thx
Phil D.

IIRC, only 90 of the 100 hulls were converted to Elefants [hulls 150010 - 150100]. One of the other ten hulls was used on the firing range in ballistic testing. Two were in the Tiger I(P) configuration and three as Berge-Elephants.
I know that's not an answer but perhaps someone has more for you than me but 150100 was built as the Elefant .

Life's so very funny, you just need to remember to laugh [note to the clowns].

Why would the clowns not let people into the tent? What's the point of the show if they don't? .
