I have the Airfix kit of the 105mm Light Gun. Apart from using the shorter barrel (supplied with the kit), what other modifications/additions are needed to depict the US M119 weapon?

That is pretty much all you need to change for a US M119 howitzer. Here is my build of one in 1/35 using the Mouse House resin kit.
