The 2017 Show committee from the host chapter, Northeast Military Modeling Association (NMMA), is working on the target list and H hour is April 20 – 22, 2017
This year our rally point will be in Danbury, Connecticut at the Danbury Crown Plaza Hotel, 18 Ridgebury Road, Danbury, Connecticut 06810.
This new location takes the forward edge of the modeling area north to the same venue used for Armorcon. Feel free to take us for a test run September 23 & 24 to check out the venue. This will be an all in one show with the hotel as the show venue using their ballrooms to host our vendors and the largest armor model display on the planet.
Keep your frequency tuned here or on Facebook to see the latest updates as we execute the largest armor modeling (and social gathering) in the world.
Best Theme Award
The general criteria for judging the Best Theme Award is contained on page 7 of the current AMPS Contest Rules. For 2017 only, we are further defining this criterion as follows:
The theme for the 2017 AMPS International Convention is “Smile for the Birdie.” This award is given to the model that most appropriately represents the theme selected for the convention. It may be given to either an INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED level entry. In order to qualify for this year’s Best Theme Award, entries can be any vehicle/group of figures from any era after 1899, which can be matched to a specific photograph. This includes both historical and existing vehicles (e.g. "gate guards") but the model has to match in the aspect shown in the photograph. The modeler must provide a copy of the photograph as documentation. However, a 360 view of the subject is not necessary.
In cases where entrants are uncertain as to whether their model would qualify for the Theme Award the Chief Judge will be the final arbitrator and make the decision whether an entry fits the theme.
We are looking to have a great event in Danbury, CT 20-22 April 2017.
