Su-122 barrel
1:48th Scale Set #MK-11
Review by Terry Ashley

TamiyaFinemolds have released this metal barrel for the recently released Tamiya 1:48 SU-122 kit #32527 and consists of a single turned brass barrel.

The barrel is the same size as the Tamiya kit barrel with the muzzle drilled out to a depth of about 3mm but has no rifling and simply replaces the kit barrel without any alterations.

The Tamiya kit barrel is also a single part with no seam lines and just a minor mould seam to sand off with the muzzle drilled out deeper that the metal barrel and to be quite honest there doesn't seem to be any real advantage or increase in detail with the metal barrel.

A simple update for the Tamiya kit and the choice is yours if you really need a metal barrel?

Thanks to my Credit Card and to the guys at Rainbow Ten for their excellent service.
