For my Operation Husky 1st Canadian Division project, I am using Perry Miniatures for both sides, especially the very versatile plastic Desert Rats box to build the bulk of the Canadian infantry.  However, as the Perry figures are primarily focussed on the campaigns in North Africa, they do not currently include a PIAT, as it was only introduced in time for Operation Husky in Sicily.  (I have heard that Michael Perry plans to make a PIAT soon, but naturally, I am too impatient to wait!)

So instead, I obtained some PIATs from Company B to re-arm the Desert Rats Boys Rifle gunner, and provided his loader with a suitable PIAT bomb, and here is the result.
