Response to ISU-122 conversion

Presumably you mean if converting to the ISU-122s with the rounded mantlet etc. The mantlet of the ISU-152 and 122 (with A-19) appear to be the same (although there does seem to be a few subtle variations among the 152's). For the A-19 version ISU-122, the best aftermarket barrel seems to be Model Point piece. Unfortunately, it can't be directly used with the Tamiya ISU-152, but needs an spacer at the base of about 4 mm - easily done. It will then scale out well to plans in Russian books. The bigger problem with the Model Point barrel is that it has step about 10 mm in the from the base which would need to be faired over somehow. Otherwise, it would look just right.

Cheers,
Shane
