We introduce a model of dynamic visco-elasto-plastic evolution in the linearly elastic regime and we prove an existence and uniqueness result. Then we study the limit of (a rescaled version of) the solutions when the data vary slowly. We prove that they converge, up to a subsequence, to a quasistatic evolution in perfect plasticity.
