8 Diorama Inspired By the Heroic Story of the War

Diorama Inspired By the Heroic Story of the War

Posted on May 14, 2013 by team

For many model makers it’s not enough to buy and glue some parts together and they create cool dioramas especially military ones. They think through all details: landscape, ruins, fortifications, drama of the scene.

It is the tragic and heroic story about the Soviet heavy tank KV-2 (the most powerful for that time – summer 1941) that ruined the wooden bridge and sank in the river near the small town left by the Red Army. With help of the locals one young lieutenant managed to find new members of the crew, pull the heavy vehicle out on the bank to use it for the final battle.

    I do not understand why the model tank fell through the model bridge. Model tanks are not heavy (I have a 1:48 model T-34 and it is 213 grams only. I just checked it.) and the model bridge could have been constructed to be as strengthy and strong as required. I suggest a small brass or steel strip embeded in the bridge structure next time.

    So, the story is “tragic” and the crew needed to be replaced? Did the crew die? The fate of the crew is missing in this post.

  6. Boris says:

    They probably abandoned their tank after it was useless, and ran like most other Soviet soldiers of that period of the war (1941).
    Kudos to the artist b.t.w. This is really life-like!
