BMP-1 - 1/35 Dragon

Kit / Model  

BMP-1 APC

Manufacturer  

Dragon

Item Code  

3503

Scale  

1/35

Description  

The Dragon kit was released by the end of the 80īs, time that fortunately, a great number of soviet vehicles were issued by them. Although it can't be compared with the last products of the manufacturer, you can correct it by adding some details and little work, getting a good replica and result. Thanks to Dragon, the Esci and Trumpeter options would be laid aside.
Among all the vehicles that belong to this family, the model represented in this kit, called BMP-1 1970 Model, is the most manufactured. The main differences between the 1966 model and this one, are the long shaped hull and the chemical protection filtration system.
The version of this kit corresponds to the first units manufactured in the ex USSR. For that reason, if we wanted to get a version manufactured in Czechoslovakia (BVP-1), we would have to achieve just a few modifications.
The BMP family was exported to many countries, this is why we can choose among several paint schemes possibilities, apart from the classic green soviet. I decided to paint my model in the new Black/Grey/Green Russian scheme adopted by them at end of the 90's.
