More photos of the real Stalingrad fountain.
It appears to me that the first photo was probably taken before the war and that the second photo is from sometime shortly after the Battle of Stalingrad. Notice all the artillery shells stacked around the fountain? Maybe the battle was still underway?
You know, the more I look at that these photos the more I begin to see how it could be crudely, or maybe even not so crudely, modeled using things from around the house. If you took a round serving dish with a big lip around the edge, and an empty cat food can turned upside down, and maybe some HO or G scale model children, you would already be halfway there! What do you think?
