The two figures holding the mugs are part of the Naafi Van set (four figures in all).  The Naafi set I've painted is pretty much just for my table.
I have sent them the pictures  ;)

It might not be on the website as of yet.As Mick and Simon are busy and may be waiting on the reworked master(which should be there by 1pm today if the post is running on time ::) )
It may be possible to order directly.(again no idea as I only make them.)

In the meantime I've managed to bugger up the varnish on the staff car.I left it out in the sun to dry. Unfortunately it cooked .It not so noticeable on the driver other than a slight sheen. But tge passenger has glossed and has micro bubbles in the creases .
It'll probably rectify to some degree with another coat. But life has a way of stopping you from being smug. So we'll see if its a strip and repaint or,  phew that was close lol
Here's a couple of pictures just incase I get the urge to lauch it in the process.(last pic show's how iffy the shine is on the passenger.)

Reminds me of Foyle and Sam Stewart perambulating toward a dastardly deed perpetrated during the blackout...

Cheers Chaps,
Glad you like it.( Even though the damned thing scared easily.)
I suppose it does have a bit of 'Folye's war' feel to it.
But I think you'd get a much more of a Folye feel if you put them in this staff car and painted it Black or in a similar way to the one I posted on the Pulp board.
As all the crew varriants of both the tourer and staff car will fit both vehicles.But not the hard top Saloon( as they'd need a little filing down due to the thickness of the drop in roof panel.)
Mark.

Just to keep thing's interesting during lockdown here's another root through the sculpting pile.(although technically I didn't finish the carrier till late last night.)
This is one of the set's that includes Laffer's inspired miniatures.Which are a challenge in their self. As the roles are quite specific. The issue was find a conversation in which these roles had context with both the background stories and a set of figures that would appeal to more than just the individual's involved.

In the end the solution was simply an in context   conversation . Between a Downed pilot explaining his plight to the crew of an armoured forward observation team.

Rather than it being just a story piece. It's put together in a way that you can use it as an artillery spotter with the disheveled Artillery Officer observing from the carrier , and still have a separate story piece. With the pilot talking to the figure in the modified assault vest.

The Artillery Officer has an integral base to keep him at eye level with the other characters. With the less confident modeller,It's also shaped in such away as to fit in the carrier .(ideally it be removed.)

The carrier is kitted out for the role by the book.With additional kit commonly seen in theatre photos. To give it an autonomous feel.

Brilliant stuff! The disheveled artillery officer is spot on, an accurate  description of the LAF member in question :) ;)
