About this creation
The creation is for the category "The Ides of March"
Build a scene depicting treason, conspricy, and plots.
My scene is the Stauffenberg Bomb. On July 20, 1944, a briefcase bomb exploded under the desk in Adolf Hitler's bunker, the "Wolf's Lair," in Poland. The bomb had been placed there as a plot to kill Hitler by his own staff officers. The plot included Hans Oster, Ludwig Beck, Friedrich Olbricht, Erwin von Witzelben, Henning von Treskcow, Franz Halder, Carl Goedeler, Helmuth James Graf von Moltke, Walther von Brauchitsch, and Claus von Stauffenberg, whom the plot was named for. These men believed that were Hitler to be killed, they could negotiate a treaty with the Allies and end the war. Stauffenberg placed a briefcase bomb in Hitler's bunker in Poland, during a meeting, and the bomb exploded, killing three staff officers, but Hitler survived. 7,000 people were arrested by the Gestapo, and 4,980 were executed, including Stauffenberg.

Another shot of the whole thing.
To be honest, I'm not to happy with the way this turned out, but it came out better than I thought it would.

The build was kind of simple. But I really like "stop in time" scene that you created with all the rubble flying all over the place. 3.5/5 -LB Senior

Nice idea, and I'm sorry to have to give you a score of 0. If it makes you feel any better, when I competed one of my creations got DQ'd...no big deal, though. Just keep building! ;)

Don't get discouraged! If you click on the little hyperlink for learn some simple html, you'll see that you can't just put the web address you want to direct to, but you need to do some programing. It's really not as hard as it sounds... try it out and you'll be surprised at how simple it is! Good luck. ~Dave

Quoting Chris Phipson Woulda been a two but we have to be fair here. Your links don't work and we've given zeros for that in the past. I'm sorry but we have to be consistant. Score of 0. ~ Chris.
I moved my links to the bottom of the page and they still don't work, so, I don't know what to do.

Your links do not work because you have them in the introduction. We have been talking about this for over a week now. The build is pretty basic as well. Your score = 1 (I took a point off for non working links, but at least you tried to put them in)

Hans took part in this?! I didn't realize he was a time traveler! Pretty plain here man, but you put in some good effort. Score= 2

It looks just like a scene frozen in time. It is a simple build though. (kinda hard to do a detailed creation when you are building a bunker, right?)Score: 2
