Magnetized ISU 152/122 Regiment Completed!

This is a follow up to this post, so I'm not going to revisit the history of the ISUs.  Instead, I'll briefly talk about magnetizing them and show off pictures of the complete unit!

Magnetizing them was extremely easy.  Max sent me some great magnets- 1/16" is what their diameter worked out too if I remember correctly.

So I pulled out my drill, got the appropriate bit, and went to town!  Each assault gun needed 3 magnets- one for the hull and 1 for each barrel.

Getting their polarity right is absolutely the most important step of the whole process!  I did wind up messing one up, but was able to salvage it.

It would have been easier if you had used a small steel disc to put in each hull? That way no need to worry about flying gun barrels,if you have the magnets the wrong way round !!!

@lap it may have been easier if I had a supply of small steel discs perhaps! But I had a boat load of magnets :) It wasn't that difficult really, just have to make sure you don't forget about it.
