Even in 1/35, there are bigger kits, like the Karl Morser. Depending on how you define a model, I have a 1/700 set of Japanese harbor vessels; some of these are less than ahlf an inch long. Some of the ones with more than one piece are still less than an inch long. There are also sets of 1/700 aircraft that require some assembly.

Pit Road make 1/700 aircraft, most in metal but some in plastic. Separate props and undercarriage too, so they're KITS not toys !

The smallest models that I can recall are the tow tractors provided with the old Aurora USS Enterprise CVAN-65 model. Naturally, they were one piece.

Didn't someone do 1/1200th aircraft?

The 1/35 Karl kits out are of the vehicle in self-propelled mode, in which it was only 11.4 meters long. The Leopold K5(E) is about 30 meters long. Possibly the Karl with the associated railcars on either end is longer than the K5(E), but that configuration isn't available as a 1/35 scale plastic model.

Probably 1:700 aircraft, such as the multi-part A6 which comes as an extra in a kit of Russian Fast Attack Craft. It gets a section of carrier deck to display it on, and decals! Slightly larger were a set of Japanese WW2 warships in 1:3000 scale. However I only ever saw one box of these, but it appears there were several more boxes in the series. Some of these contained destroyers (the smallest vessel in the box I built was a light cruiser), and if they were multi-part mouldings they could probably qualify as smallest plastic kit. If you include wargames equipment, there are some very small multi-part white metal items, such as the Ros and Heroics 1:300 Rapier system - IIRC four bits for the launcher, there was also a Blindfire radar, and maybe also the visual aiming unit.
One late thought - I think Pit Road did tanks for a 1:700 landing craft - if there were separate turrets these would be the smallest armour kits, and probably the smallest overall UNLESS the Japanese 1:700 amphibious light tanks included in a Landing Craft/Kaiten Carrier kit were multi-part.

Small scale but not a small model. I think some of the Star Trek ships are made to a smaller scale but they are still fairly large.

That reminds me. I have a plastic ship that came with a stand in a cereal box. It's supposed to be the SS United States and is around 1.5 - 2 inches long. There's fairly good detail for a ship that small. I'll have to dig around for it. I think it's still here, somewhere.

There are many 1/700 aircraft models - from WWII era up to current - by a number of different manufacturers.

There's a whole assortment of 1/1200 gaming pieces that might qualify. Jerry 47

What about B-52 or Tu-95 in 1/72, or Enterprise in 1/350? I think that those are bigger then Leopold in 1/35.
And if you consider resin model too, there is also a German submarine, Type VII b or c, in 1/32 or 35 scale.
For the smallest there are aircraft in 1/700.

The Enterprise model I have is only about 1 1/2 foot long - it is NCC1701D which was the biggest of them.

Hi, I forgot "perhaps" from my speculation:) Enterprise sounds quite big:))) And also sub in 1/35 must be bigger.

Unicraft did a resin 1/72 backpack helicopter. No idea how many parts there were, but that's SMALL...
