You were asked – TMP link

Many 15mm and larger tank models come with the option to pose a tank commander figure in an open hatch. What is your preference when painting?

Never mind the commander, what about the driver and W/O, machine gunner next to him?

In 1/72 100% will say attach them inside the hatches(doors strictly speaking) before assembling the hull. With turret off, try gluing them in place from the inside, even with the most curved forceps.
