Panzer III...

...flood. Or, here's some I did earlier.

The Matchbox PzIIIJ proceeds, and shouldn't be too much longer; although there may be a problem mating the top and bottom of the hull. While my mind is on simple, wargame models of PzIIIs, I thought I'd hunt out what I have in that department:

Four for Rommel. The nearest are from Frontline, while the very distant, 37mm armed, PzIII is a SHQ one, I think.

Also for the Desert Fox:

A couple of Matchbox ones, the nearest being a basic conversion to the 'short' 50mm version, with the further one being straight from the box.

Altogether, here's my 20mm Panzer III flood in the desert:

And a resin PzIIIN, with 75mm gun/howitzer, looking for all the world like a fat, armoured duck:

Finally, a ready made PzIII that my son brought back from Bratislava for me a few years ago:

And, to think, back in the day, the only option was to undertake drastic, and trickey, surgery on Airfix's StugIII.
