IKEAGRAD – Primary Sources

In July 2021, msimm04 pointed out that part of IKEAGRAD was incomplete as shown in my May 2021 post. He noticed that one of the white buildings (seen third from the left in the photo above) needed finishing as the Airfix Inn, citing an original photo of Lionel Tarr’s STALINGRAD with the inn clearly visible in the photo below.

With such a compelling primary source, what else could I do other than finish the model as evidenced?


Of course, for true authenticity, I should really have two!

The inhabitants of IKEAGRAD are so proud of their city that they have emblazoned its name on one of the buildings.
