20mm Painted WW2 German Fallschirmjager Platoon

A early war German paratrooper platoon for dropping in on the south coast of England, veterans of Belgium and France, Ray painted these and I finished them, more to come as I finish mortars, MG34s, artillery and casualties.
The majority of figures are AB Figures with a few SHQ Miniatures aswell.

  32. Where would be a good spot where they could secure an airfield, or more than one, suitable for the Junkers 87 trimotors, and also secure a port at the same time to land the main reinforcements? Maybe where the Dutch did it earlier, down the river.
