The Central South Carolina "Wildcats" Chapter of the Armor Modeling and Preservation Society (AMPS) was established in August, 2010.
When we actually meet in person, we meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Richland Library Sandhills (Village of Sandhills Shopping Center), 763 Fashion Drive, Columbia (NE). Since June, 2020, we've conducted Virtual Meetings using Zoom.
Our meetings are open to anyone who shares our interest and enthusiasm for the history and technology associated with armored fighting vehicles and the men and women who serve in the military forces of the world along side those same vehicles.

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)!"
