Panzer III Conversion
Roco Minitanks Panzer III in HO scale, converted to a flame thrower.
I cut about 1/4 inch, 4mm off the end of the 50mm gun barrel.
Then slipped a bit of aluminum tubing over the end of the barrel that was the same length as the original barrel.
Germans used them up to the end of the war, usually in platoons of seven of them.
A very easy conversion, and you can always remove the 50mm gun and replace it with the 75mm gun to make this a gun tank again.
