Aber Russian ML-20S Barrel for
ISU-152 heavy tank (35L-40)
by Nick Cortese
Aber Etch of Poland has released a plethora of metal replacement barrels
for Russian vehicles and this one is just wonderful. Made specifically
for the Italeri and Zvezda models kits it can also be used for any variant
of the ISU, most notably being the Eastern Express SU-152.
Russian ML-20S Barrel
This simple upgrade consists of the barrel in two separate pieces, particularly
notable is the beautiful muzzle brake, which is often a clean-up problem
with any of the plastic kits available. The main barrel inner rifling
effect, although hard to see because of the large muzzle brake, is well
detailed. A simple filing and opening up of the muzzle brake from the
inside is all that is needed to attach the barrel to the kit mantlet.
Once again, Aber’s high standards and top notch milling have produced
another first rate product. The massive 152 muzzle brake is a real eye
opener, and anyone contemplating building any of the 152 variants should
seriously look into Aber’s ML-20S replacement barrel as an easy,
