AMPS - Armor Modeling & Preservation Society  MOST VISITED
Description: The Armor Modeling and Preservation Society, or AMPS, was founded in July 1993 to take up the slack left by the collapse of the Association of Military Modelers in August 1992. Since that time, AMPS has grown to over 600 members worldwide. Although AMPS's main function is as a modeling club, it is definitely a different type of modeling organization compared to IPMS or other mainstream groups. AMPS has a Constitution and Bylaws to govern how it is run, and the AMPS judging system rewards individual effort rather than nitpicking to determine a first, second or third place winner. The purpose of AMPS is to foster a knowledge and appreciation of the history of armored vehicles, through examination of preserved examples located in both museums and private collections, in miniature through modeling. To this end, AMPS publishes a 28-page journal called Boresight six times a year. This journal covers reviews, tips, articles on preserved vehicles, and comparisons of models and related items. AMPS also hosts an international convention every spring in which the subject of armor is supreme. The convention features the best armor model vendors, seminars from armor experts, and an excellent example of the best armor models from around the world in its competition. Competition is organized into five levels - junior, basic, intermediate, advanced, and master - and the judging system rewards the modeler for his individual effort, not in comparison to other modelers.
