Trumpeter 1/35 scale Soviet BMP-1 IFV

By Jim Zeske
Published: May 6, 2013

Trumpeter’s 1/35 scale BMP-1 plastic model kit is cleanly molded in light gray plastic with no sink marks or flash apparent. The kit includes separate track links, photoetched-metal details, and a metal gun barrel.

The kit was a straightforward build from the first time I looked at the instructions. Construction of the main hull goes quickly, as there are just two main parts. All of the hatches are separate, and most have interior detail. However, there is no hull interior per se.
