True Details 1/32 RAF WWII Parachute #1
In the days before parachutes were incorporated into the seat of the plane, pilots would have to don them prior to entering the plane. Naturally, they often waited until just before boarding to put them on as they were not exactly comfortable to walk around in. Getting out of them was also the first thing they did post mission.
Often times these were set on the tailplane or on the wing before going through the steps to putting them on. So True Details has decided to offer the parachute packs just for the purpose of adding them to a diorama or single plane display. This particular chute is one typically worn by RAF aircrew during WWII and is what you would call a seat pack type, called the Type S Mk.II Irvin for parachute fans. This is shown with the seat pack upturned.
As you can see, the molding is top notch and this one will make a nice addition to your next big scale RAF kit or diorama.
