I saw this neat diorama of the Battle of the Bulge on a Toy Soldier forum. Can anyone spot the problem?

I would have to say the Casablanca movie poster. I know the movie was made before WWII began, but I would think that the movie would not have been accepted overseas by certain areas of the country, due to the the storyline of the movie.

Right! It came out in 1942. The diorama artist told me the film was air dropped to the troops. (Posters too !!!!???) Why send a two year old film to the troops?

Well, at least it wasn't a poster for "Patton!"

..to kid the guy, but he's pretty nice. So I didn't.

Another person on another forum noticed that one figure had the helmet netting that he maintained wasn't worn at the Bulge.

Wouldn't it have been "kewl" if Napoleon III had come to help the Confederacy with their mitrailleuse?

It's OK, they aren't clear in the photo. "Swedish Gasoline!" Hahhaha! There were a lot of them around here when I was kid and their cultural activities were coffee based.
