Early Panzer IIIs

I picked up a couple of what might be Frontline Panzer IIIs (probably an Ausf E) at the B&B at South Cheshire Militaire at Crewe.

Given I haven't any 37mm armed versions they are a useful addition. The only problem I found was separating the turrets as they were already stuck on, as I prefer mine to rotate and then discovered that although the hull had the hole for the turret plug, the turrets didn't have them. Very strange. I cut a couple of rings off some 15mm copper pipe and fitted them as centrally as I could.
