Attack Kits has recently released a 1/72 Humber III. It is a nice kit, but looking at their instructions online, on the bottom right corner of the link provided, there appears to be a Humber turret built with two 7.7mm Besas. This is seen in step VIII.

On the wikipedia page, there appears to mention a Mark II variant, an observation post with two Besa 7.7mm. However, I can not find any photographs of this car.

Does anyone know whether the Attack Kit optional variant with the twin 7.7mm Besas existed?

The only armament I've seen for Humber armoured cars is 15-mm and coax 7.92-mm Besa in the MkI, II and III, and 37-mm with coax 7.92-mm in the MkIV. There was a Rear Link version of the MkIII, the stowage scheme for which identifies the 15-mm and 7.92-mm as 'dummy' guns.

There was a lot of discussion on OP vehicles for RA units, I can't say the ref to a Humber OP rings a bell.
