Is that image of Stalin on the KV1 an authentic marking or artistic license? Either way it’s quite striking.

Never seen in photos. I looked at them a lot. But in this performance it seems very natural. If this is a modeler’s fantasy, then bravo!

Well made diorama, can’t comment on the turret slogan but looks right. Only issue I have is can’t be 1942 with Einheitsmutze and “retreat gaiters” on German figures. Earliest mid-1943 I’d say. Very small point and doesn’t affect quality of diorama in any way.
