Here are a few pics of my CAVE I hide in to relax. The N scale model railroad above everything is Tacoma, Washington about 1958. All buildings save a few are completely scratch built from historical photos.

So, that's where the magic happens! Very, very nice hobby room. Maybe one day I'll have a decent hobby room. Actually, I'd just be happy with decent lighting!

I'd be happy with a room like that. I'm still trying to get mine done. I see a few builds that I've not seen b4, like the silver GMC. Nice layout, too.

Nice looking hobby room. I just packed my hobby room up in preparation for a move.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that has to share his man cave with a model railroad.

Great man cave. I am currently working out of the same shop that I work on the real trucks in. LOL

You need to make a thread that has all of your trucks in it. You have several very interesting models that I have not seen before.

That is a great man cave! I love all the box lids that are blown up on the wall, but I especially like the railroad, that is a neat idea to have it running around the room.

Thanks guys. I like using the box lids from kits as wall paper. Most of the ones on the wall are original except for a few repops that will be replaced in the future.

Kinda off the truck, path here, but is that a Southern Pacific pike you have there? Thought I spotted a Cab Forward! My Grand dad used to work on those in their hey day.
