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 Luftwaffe aircrew during WWII and is what you would call a seat pack type, called the Fl 30231 for parachute fans.

As you can see, the molding is top notch and this one will make a nice addition to your next big scale Luftwaffe kit or diorama. Sorry for the streak in the image, there is some 'stuff' on the inside of my platen.
