Sluban continues the series of historical models with 3 different versions of the Soviet BMP, which was also used in the NVA of the former GDR.

The beginning is quite unspectacular and consists of a few plates and various simple bricks. Sluban uses almost no special parts, as one is used to from COBI, for example. Unfortunately, the special stickers that look like prints have also been omitted here. Instead, there are simple paper stickers. It’s a bit fiddly to get the tracks to work. To do this, the rear wheels must be given sufficient clearance. Despite the lack of special parts, Sluban solved all the sloping quite well. Inside is a minimal interior, accessed through the loose fitting covers and twin tailgates.
In the first phase, the 2MS version is being built, the turret of which has an automatic cannon and 4 rocket launchers. In the 2S version, the turret is only slightly modified. For this, the 4 rocket launchers on the sides are replaced by a single one on the turret. In the 1S version, the turret must be completely rebuilt. He’s smaller and gets a different gun.
There has not yet been a BMP from the established manufacturers, although it is a well-known vehicle that is still in use today. Basically, the model looks very nice and is also quite attractively priced. However, it is a bit unstable here and there and is only suitable for playing to a limited extent.
