In other words, how many would the plane normally have room for?
I have 16-18 of the Monogram paratroops which are to be 'milling around' waiting to board in my planned diorama (plus a couple of other ground figures to be included).

A pilot-type holding a clipboard and a couple of 'crew chiefs' or whatever - pointing - one standing/one squating (you know the ones). It'll work. Thanks guys.

... I know you've probably already planned your dio out, But...

If you get enough figures, you could make the famous scene where Gen. Eisenhower is talking to the troops before they boarded...



I think Tamiya has the "Famous Generals' set, Ike is included...
