2012 AMPS Show
Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII

The US armored fighting vehicles of WWII were well represented at the 2012 AMPS International Show. I've included some of the fine 1/72 scale kits on display, as well as some notable postwar pieces. A record number of 648 models were entered in the show.
