I'd been thinking lawfully obtained for this GB.

Captured/war spoils is a whole GB in and of itself that I was thinking of doing in 2021.

I can put you down as TBD for now.

I suspect I will be overcomitting with builds in 2020, but put me down for a Dragon's 1/35 SU-100 Six Day War kit in Egyptian markings.

Mach,

Put me down for a 1/72 Tamiya P-51D/K. Country to be decided. According to Wikipedia 28 coutries flew her during and after WWII and I have decals for most of them.  May do one of the odd ducks like Cuba or the PLAAF.

I know the feeling, Glamdring. Still, glad you decided to join up.

Got you down, and welcome!

Sure thing.

From looking through the list of operators, the German, Japanese, and PLAAF P-51s would be considered war spoils (captured craft as opposed to exports). The rest of the list has a few gray areas but would all be fair game.
