I made this Battle of Stalingrad scene for my school WW2 history project. Funnest school project EVER! Special thanks to my Lego mentor, Lucas Bonnema, for all his help and support.
I used these same photos to create a Battle of Stalingrad tribute video - check it out in my WW2 creations folder!
I'd love your input and ideas, so please rate and comment!
About this creation
"CHARGE! For Mother Russia!" Battle of Stalingrad / December, 1942.
"Die, Russian Swine!" The Germans open fire.
"Los! (Fire!)" German PAK 38 50mm anti-tank gun.
"Aaaaaah!" Russian is blown into the air by a German artillery shell.
That HAD to hurt.
Medic! Help me!
Dead Russian sniper and burning skeleton from recent German artillery shelling, in town's bell tower.
Cam, this is AMAZING! What a very creative way to share all that you've learned about the Battle of Stalingrad, and your understanding of what a day in the lives of the troops may have looked like. I would never have guessed wartime brutality could be captured using LEGOs; this is so graphic (!), in an accurate way! Your creativity never ceases to amaze me, Cam ~ WELL DONE!

Great job, Cameron! What a fun way to do a history project. I like the attention to detail and the creativity. Keep up the good work. Making lego battles is a great way to recreate historic scenes.
Thanks! I'm glad you like it. I'm developing scenes for all the major WW2 theaters, and will post photos as those are finished.
