Where Armour Modelling Comes to Life

AMPS Great White North is the annual model show presented by the Canadian Region of the Armor Modeling & Preservation Society. In addition to AMPS judging, armor model vendors, and a huge raffle table, you can get up close and see fully restored military vehicles from the museum and the Ferret Club's collections, as well as vehicles from the OMVA.
