We are moving to a hi-tek server! And once we're there, we're going to have a makeover. We need to stay hip and cool, and make things easier for you! We MAY (probably) will be down for a few days. No worries, just tech stuff. Orders may be...odd. If you do not receive instructions/confirmation back within 12 hrs of ordering, do not panic.



November 2018

Günther Prien and U-47: The Bull of Scapa Flow, by Dougie Martindale of Accurate Model Parts, is currently available from Frontline Books in the UK and US Naval Institute Press in other regions.

For full story and the BBC Radio interview with Dougie, go to BOOKS.

Yes, another break. So many naps to get in...Production will be shut from Friday 21 September through 3 October. Any orders during this time won't be seen until the 4 October. We are looking at a way for decals to continue, but are unsure if this can happen. Apologies for any inconvenience.



16 August 2018

Production will be shut until Tuesday 21 August. Any orders before that time won't be seen until the 21st. Apologies for any inconvenience.


NEW PRODUCT - Fuel Drums 1:72

14 May 2018

US and Germnan WWII fuel drums

AMP now offer Fuel Drums in 1:72 scale. Many other scales, such as 1:35, 1:48, 1:76 and 1:87 are available from various sources, but it is difficult to find 1:72. AMP drums come in a set of four, either 4x US 55 gallon (2 top caps), or 4xGerman 200 litre (top and side cap). While the drums are WWII style and modelled after US/German drums, they can be mixed and used for any time period, including today, as metal drums (just not the modern plastic style).



1 Jan 2018

We have a new cutter! That means SPACE SHUTTLE WINDOWS and GATO BOW LIMBER HOLES are available again.

Type VIIC 1:72 PE DECK set

16 September 2014  • 

New Type VIIC deck
Type VIIC DECK for Revell 1:72 is here

AMP’s 168 piece photo-etched brass set, designed to correct and improve Revell’s 1/72nd Type VIIC U-boat model kit, is now available after years of ongoing of research. Our set consists of five deck sections, along with all the required deck details, to allow the entire deck to be replaced. Rather than rely on inaccurate plans, we have taken great care to rely exclusively upon assessment of period photos to design the deck. The four main flood pieces for the hull are also included - these are the bow and stern sets, which have never been accurate on the model or after market parts.

Type IX U boat Decal Sets

Moving U 505
Moving U 505

Revell has released another fine u boat model, the Type IX in 1:72 scale. Perhaps the most famous Type IX is U 505, captured in 1944 and now restored and housed in the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. (The exhibit, and the museum, are WELL worth the effort of visiting!)

WATERLINE - Our AMP decals are direct replacements for the inaccurate Type IX waterline decals on Revell kit RV050114. Each waterline number on the AMP design has one numeral, as per the real Type IXs, whereas the Revell kit decals have two-digit numerals.

SHELL - The decal sheet for Revell kit RV050114 contains a U 505 shell emblem with a red shield. The red shield is entirely unsuitable for U 505. The AMP decal set (T9-SHELL-72) is a direct replacement, allowing modellers to accurately depict U 505 during her final patrol when she was captured by US forces.

Historically the US $ (USD) has been very convenient for international trade. But for over 12 months the USD has been so weak that it has hurt AMP. We have now changed to the Euro (EUR).


We will maintain our reasonable prices for you, the modeller. Conversion rates are available at xe.com (also on the sidebar).
