We will hold our 2018 Scale Model MEGA-Show on Friday and Saturday, June 22-23, 2017 at the SC National Guard Armory at 1225 Bluff Road, Columbia, SC 29201. For our show this year we will 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 65 Display Tables plus 45 Vendor Tables, plus a classroom for Judges' Training, too!   AMPS Membership not required for entry!

AMPS Show Theme:

This year's Theme for the AMPS side of the Show is "I want my MTV! ~ I love the '80s!". Modeler's Entry(ies) must meet the following requirements for Theme Award Eligibility: 

"AMPS qualifying model subjects that were in-service between 01 January, 1980 and 31 December, 1989, inclusive of all nationalities and locations.  Markings, camouflage, and other technical or historical aspects of the model must accurately place it somewhere along that timeline.  Subjects that are depicted with technical or historical features or aspects that fall outside of this timeline will be ineligible even if the subject "basis" for that model was existent during some period within the specified timeline.  Hypothetical, imaginary or sci-fi model subjects must be based on recognized fictional works that were first published or broadcast during the specified timeline.  Neither the specific genre of the fictional work nor the media by which it was published or broadcast will be the basis used to determine eligibility.   Models of proposed vehicle / weapon / equipment designs must be based on sources that were first published during the specified timeline.  It will be the entrant’s responsibility to provide, on request, corroborating information of his or her model’s theme eligibility.  This may be done by submitting “Research Bonus” information IAW AMPS rules.  However, theme eligibility does not require accompanying “Research Bonus” material.  The entrant may use some other method to corroborate his or her model’s eligibility if it is questioned.  In all cases, the entrants must notify the show registrar and Ram Rod of his or her model’s eligibility for the theme award during registration.  Failure to so may result in that model being overlooked by the judges.(These rules apply to the AMPS side Theme Award ONLY!)

Any questions about eligibility will be decided by the AMPS Chief Judge whose decision will be final.

Adult Registration:       (18 And Older)          $15 for the First 3 Models, $4 each Additional Model

Junior Registration:      (17 And Under)         $6 for the First 3 Models, $4 each Additional Model

Entry Categories:

We will use the standard AMPS Categories for organizing all entries on the AMPS side of the Show (IPMS Categories and Rules will be used on their side of the show).  The below list shows these categories along with the Best Of  Awards we are planning.



























AMPS Judges Certification Class:

If you are not already a qualified AMPS Field Judge, you should consider attending an AMPS Judges Certification Class we will conduct on Friday evening.  Attendees will then have to execute the required number of Judging Shifts (at least two). This invite is open to modelers of all experience levels, even Junior Modelers under 17 years of age!

If you are already a certified AMPS Field Judge, we can certainly use your help in the Judging Pits.
