The 90-ton assault 'Mech called Mauler was introduced in the Draconis Combine in 3048.

However, it was not actually a new design. Instead, it is based on the DCMS-MX90-D Daboku which was first deployed along the Combine border as early as 3038 in selected DCMS units and codenamed Mauler by Federated Commonwealth forces when first encountered. Because the Daboku turned out a design failure suffering from crippling construction flaws, Luthien Armor Works shelved the Daboku and later adopted the FedCom codename Mauler for its redesigned successor in order to avoid the stigma associated with the earlier shameful failure, effectively treating the Mauler as an entirely new, distinct 'Mech.

Thus, references to the Mauler pre-dating 3048 usually refer to the Daboku, an outwardly similar but technically substantially different predecessor design.

According to apocryphal information, the Daboku was in turn based on a Capellan Confederation prototype design called the LMN-1PT5 Linesman; one Linesman was sold to the Draconis Combine where the design later became known as Nainokami.

Model is printed in a grey resin and supplied with a base.

Just an overall gorgeous model and one of my favorite inner-sphere mechs details are good, the pose is great.
