Need a couple of simple BMP 1 or 2 kits. Probably prefer plastic but metal or resin wouldn't be a problem. I thought Zvezda made some but can only find 1/35 from that company. What are my options? Thanks so much!

Zvezda never released BMP's in 1/100.

Battlefront offers them in plastic for their Team Yankee miniatures game of course.

If you don't mind the questionable quality or scan lines, Butler Printed Models can 3D print them to order in 15mm.

QRF, Khurasan and Skytrex (same as Old Glory) offer them in metal I believe. The Khurasan model may be hybrid resin-and-metal.

For singles go with Khurasan (resin hull, metal tracks). For a platoon or more, BF.

Actually you don't have to. Gale Force Nine offers repackaged Battlefront models in singles for their "Tanks: The Modern Age" miniatures game at around $9.00 USD to $10.00 USD apiece. How do you think I filled out my FOW and TY armies without having to buy them in platoon box sets of 4 or 5?

Having said that, you really can't go wrong with Khurasan if you don't mind paying a little extra.

I stand happily corrected!

Thanks Gents, I think I will go with the Battlefront BMP company pack of 5. Gives me both BMP-1 and 2 options. Hopefully I can find it at Fall In next week.

The nice thing about the Battlefront ones is that if you dont glue the hull top to the tracks ( the two parts are a nice tight fit anyway)there are enough parts in the kit that you can swap the tops and make both BMP1 and 2s from the same kit, giving you 10 models for the price of 5
