AMPS 2024 Show Announcement - Holiday Cheer and Reminder

Seasons Greetings Fellow Armor Modelers,

The countdown to the AMPS 2024 International Show in South Bend, IN, is closing in on 100 days before the doors open to a Midwest armor extravaganza. Just a few quick reminders before you get back to family, friends, egg nog and Christmas movies:

Hotel Reservations: AMPS Facebook noted earlier this week that rooms at the hotels listed on the AMPS homepage ( are going fast. So, if you didn’t reserve your rooms, now would be a good time to ensure you’ve got a place to stay. For the best service, use the links on the AMPS homepage.

Call for Judges: AMPS always needs many judges to help ensure all entries are reviewed and scored by the judges. Check out the Judges’ Training modules on the AMPS home page ( and consider volunteering for a shift or more at the show.

Pre-registration: Pre-registration will be opening soon. This is a great time saver, especially for when you arrive at the show. Simply drop off your paperwork, hand off your model to the ramrod and enjoy the show. More information to follow in future AMPS 2024 show announcements. And hey … your model entries do not have to be completed when pre-registering.

Kit Donations: In upcoming show announcements, we will making a call for donations to be added to the ever popular AMPS raffle. So, as you wander through your stash of kits, aftermarket, and books, consider making a donation to help grow the AMPS raffle that directly funds the society to host future shows and preservation projects.

Have a great Christmas holiday and New Year season. Stay safe and enjoy family and friends!
