There are many mistakes in the French text. There is written Iron Cross 1st Class with oak leaves and swords, quite a nonsence and he didn´t received them after 100 victories but after 72.

I have checked the dates of the model-pics! Model gets his oakleaves on February 28th, 1942, in the Wolfsschanze (source: War diary of the OKW)

The meeting with Thomsen and Bötticher (knightscross of the war merit cross) was on May 29th, 1942, in Berlin!!!!!
Not at the Wolfsschanze!. I have compared this pic with the pic of the Hitler's meeting with the indian politican Subhas Chandra Bose in Berlin. It's the same interieur, the same location

I have (according to Wolfgang Paul “Der Endkampf in Deutschland“):
15.04.1945 Fliegt mit seiner He 111 von Josephstadt nach Cottbus (3 Me 109 als Begeitschutz), von dort mit PKW nach Berlin; bietet Hitler vergeblich an, das FHQu zur HGr Mitte zu verlegen.
22.04.1945 Oberleutnant Graßmann fliegt Schörner nach Berlin-Gatow
23.04.1945 Schörner habe sich den Marschallstab am Abend bei Hitler in Berlin abgeholt und sei noch in der Nacht von Gatow aus zurückgeflogen
