This is something of which I would have never considered, but thinking about it, it makes perfect sense. Often times, 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 the pilot went 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 the Type AN-6510 that was commonly worn during the 1930s and through WWII. Unlike the previous chute, this one is molded facing down. A pretty neat idea and one you will like as well.
