Thanks for the review Jacques.

You're possibly quoting the Wydawnictwo book because that's all you have, but anyone wanting superlative line drawings should look up the OOP WWP book, just sayin'...




Cheers,

Christophe

Yes I agree with Christophe, that is absolutely the best book available on the BMP-1.

Thanks for the review Jacques.

I agree that the WWP is excellent for detail shots, but Wydawnictwo seems to be just as accurate for the overall drawings. If anything, I hope this review brings out measurements of the real vehicle to compare to the model, not just extrapolations from drawings.

Very nice. It is a pity that there is no Polish painting, but "Toro-Model"no.

Thanks for the review, It's to bad that trumpeter did not spend the time or money to include an interior with this kit. Their latest BTR and BRDM kits have excellant interiors it's a shame that this kit does not. We will all have to wait on the after market guys to make this kit complete.
