This spring my military room looked like this, and I thought I would never get it completed.

Now, it is all put together and things are gettting organized day by day.

It's great when a guy finally has his own room to display the things that people outside of militaria collectors would never understand, nor appreciate. Nice room and well displayed!

Suh-weeet! Seriously, a nice professional looking room. My one suggestion would be to make sure the plastic dust covers on the uniforms are polyethylene. Again, really nice.

Sweet!!  Congrats on a great room and a great collection!

 

May we please see more?  Maybe a wider angle of the items on the walls?

There is plenty of room to set up a army cot with room to spare. I had one set up to size things up. There is heat, a desk, and good lighting.

Some more views of my military room. I collect US Army armor related items, with a strong focus on the 4th Armored Division. Alot of these uniforms had been packed away for up to 4 years, and they are now liberated from their storeage crates and housed in a decent room. The first photo is of a wool shirt with an armored triangle with the number 755 faintly pened into the yellow apex. This is one of my favorite wool shirts.

Nice!  Thanks for the additional photos.

 

I also collect armor and TD items.  Heck, I think I even recognize a few of your books.

Now that I have some more time on my side and I figured out how to resize photos, I am going to update Tank Turret Topic. I will start by my display " In Memory of Sergeant John Solowey".
