Competition among the members is keen and every year our members produce very good models of outstanding quality.

AME has participated in the following International Exhibitions:

AME members have won various awards at the Model Engineer Exhibition in UK. Some of these are: Mr James Rizzo won first prize with his hot air engine, Mr Carmel Borg won first prize with his scratch built model of a Ford Mustang. Other highly commended models were an HP Hastings by Carmel Attard. A model of the golden mask of Tutankhamen by Publius Magro won a silver medal.

Two members of AME were invited for several years to act as judges in various International Model Competitions. This recognizes the quality and standard of the Maltese modeler especially for members of the Association of Model Engineers.
