Our member interests span the entire spectrum of the subject and include all eras and nationalities, from pre-WWI experiments with armored cars to vehicles seen on the most contemporary battlefields of today. Our interests include not only fully-tracked main battle tanks, but also engineering vehicles, halftracks, armored cars, artillery and guns, as well as soft-skin military support vehicles, figures, and even "hypothetical" and sci-fi military subjects. Model-building genres cover all scales and mediums from traditional injection molded plastic to resin, white metal, and scratch-building.
We invite you to come and join us at our next meeting and share the comradery found in our little "band of brothers (and sisters)!"

AMPS CENTRAL SC HOME
Regular Club Meeting, February 14, 2019
We will hold our 2019 Scale Model MEGA-Show on Friday and Saturday, June 21-22, 2019 at the SC National Guard Armory at 1225 Bluff Road, Columbia, SC 29201. We will once again co-host with a local IPMS club, the Mid-Carolina "Swamp Fox Modelers", which should make the show quite good, since we are planning to have lots of Vendors, a joint Raffle, and of course, the SC Military Museum is right behind the Armory! The air conditioned Armory Drill Hall venue has enough space for 56 Display Tables and 61 Vendor Tables, plus classrooms for Judges' Training, too! AMPS Membership not required for entry!
For all of the important Scale Model MEGA-Show information, please go to our new 2019 Scale Model MEGA-Show Page!
