Well, December 25th marks the 20th anniversary of the dissolution of the Soviet Union. 20 years ago, America--the world-- was finally free from the threat of nuclear annihilation. Russia was finally free from decades of oppression, the Gulag was no more, and most of all, postwar Germany was reunited. So, what better model for this occasion than a model of the piece of Soviet history that has since become a symbol of oppression, the Berlin Wall. Granted, the Wall fell down some two years prior, but it's still a symbol of Soviet oppression, is it not? The model will include two segments of the wall; one blank whitewashed segment, and another featuring a Checkpoint Charlie sign. I'm almost done building the first section; should be done with both segments tonight, and I'll probably testbuild on Friday. Enjoy some photos: at the bottom of each segment is a little plate showing various dates involving the wall. I've written it in German, English and French. If anyone can translate it into Russian as well, that'd be great!
