Art imitates Life

Mini-Art is the manufacturer of scale model kits. Their catalogue contains a number of variants of a military WLA with or without rider in various forms. I have obtained a couple of these kits with a view to making a post-War diorama. One of the kits in entitle "Motorcycle Repair Crew. It has two bikes and three figures and comes with this box art:
