I built the Zeveda version of this vehicle a few years ago. That was the first time I had seen a kit from the company and it was the right price. Turned out to be nice molding and a nice kit overall. It is always nice to have an option to any kit and manufacturer. Modern Soviet stuff has been elusive in the past so its nice to see more coming onto the market

There's a minor typo; it's written "Gvozika" instead of "Gvozdika"..

Gvozdika is the spelling from model kits and Wikipedia and other sites.

There's also a BMP-1 hull and turret photo there.

"Step 7 is a photo etched build of the 2 Rear hull water vanes", these are a nightmare to build. Just too fiddly
