I've done a bit more tweaking and got a few more guys out on display.

The poor old Dalek's have lost their shelf. It wasn't the work of the Doctor but because I needed the space!

Thanks for the comments guys!

You won't regret creating a VAM room Vince.

Thought I'd post a final update about my vam loft. It's as finished as it'll ever be! Probably 80% of my stuff is up there so from now on it's just arranging an rearranging. Even before I started I knew the available space fell well sort of what I needed but at least my collection now has a permanent home and it's (mostly) all in one place.

My crew took official possession from the contractor today and the HQ is now designated as 'Active'!

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3582_zpsscpwkdpb

As the saying goes 'Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home!' so the guys are really happy they have a place of their own no matter how cramped and over crowded it is!

Finally having a permanent base has made the guys reminisce about their past homes. Their best posting in terms of floor space was probably the two years they had the spare room.

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 IMG_1681_zps7fc6d3ed

It was certainly spacious but keeping it free from otherwise homeless household junk was a full time job. At least the loft is more secure and is hardly going to suddenly gain a make-up corner!

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3592_zpsc1a9ql4l

Cunningly disguised as an old draw this was the guy's home back in the day and the time machine that got them here to the future via 30 years in the loft!

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3593_zpslkenmhdm

The stickers provide a reliable date of when the HQ was in operation.

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3594_zpsaoq75tys

Prior to that they were literally living in a cardboard box!

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3596_zpsnyavb6lq

As a kid I would stay at my grandparent's on alternate weekends and I can remember this box would be loaded in the boot of my granddad's old Ford Popular.

'It's even more cramped than the loft!!' Dating via an old newspaper..

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3601_zpsn8u4ime3

SKJ's Loft/Joe room. - Page 4 DSCF3602_zpsyjyadvur

It's taken them 40 odd years to get from cardboard city to a purpose build penthouse! lol!

Wow! Steve... you even have their original cardboard box! That is amazing... cheers

The penthouse is all they could have dreamed of and more, what a bunch of lucky VAM!

Tom says he's still waiting for the invite... Sad

Gold trimmed invitation card... VIP, RSVP and all that!

Excellent room, Steve!!!

It is a thing of beauty with all the figures posed on the shelving -- brilliant set up and just enough floor space for some play time.
