Group builds offer club members the chance to choose a subject that they might not usually partake in, or dig through the stash for a kit that's been waiting for a golden opportunity, and then share the process of their build with the rest of the club or offer useful help and suggestions to others. Members should pick one subject (either kit or diorama) per group build and then let the rest of the club know when they start building it.

Members are encouraged to share the progress of their builds either on the AMS Facebook group, on Zoom build nights, or at monthly club nights, throughout the duration of the group build and prior to the end date and competition. Entry into the competition is not mandatory!
