The Central South Carolina "Wildcats" Chapter of the Armor Modeling and Preservation Society (AMPS) was established in August, 2010.
When we meet in person, we meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Firefly Toys & Games, 736c Saint Andrews Road, Columbia, SC 29210. From June, 2020 to September, 2021, we 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.
Please see Our FaceBook Page for more picture, activities and info.
For all of the information you could ask for, please go to The Mega Show Page.
We're meeting IN-PERSON on the second Tuesday of each month from 6 - 8 pm at FireFly Toys & Games store. For more information on the store, please see FireFly website.
Please see the slideshow on Meeting Photos page for photos of the models that were brought in for Show & Tell, the meeting.

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)!"
