Does the submission item have to be forcibly taken over/captured? How about cases like the dissolution of the Soviet Union, when lots of equipment ended up in foreign (and not always "friendly" teritory)?

Yes. The Soviet dissolution is an edge case: there were negotiations about the equipment. This was more like selling secondhand equipment than a forcible takeover.

The time has come to open the "Finished Builds" section, please  :lol:.

And I wonder why the "General Discussion" thread has been closed?

Both unlocked.

Not sure why the discussion one was locked.

It figures that Dizzy is the first one to want to post a finished build  ;) ;)

So what else is new?  ;D ;D ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Ooops apologies on both accounts

I should have opened the Finished Builds and the closing of the General Discussion thread may well have been down to my misbehaving mouse  :angry:

STOP THE PRESS!

What about interned aircraft? As an example, Portugal operated a Sunderland that was interned after alighting there, fuel exhausted after fighting its way through a fierce storm.

I have a cunning plan... Or two...

I would say that interned aircraft classify as captured

That might work well for Sweden and Switzerland, too, several aircraft landed there in WWII and occasionally pressed into service.

Ireland too.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Sweden used one or more interned B-17 as airliner(s) at the end of the war. A "civilian" capture is contemplated in the GB?  ;D
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Since you're one of the moderators I will take that as a YES!
