This is a great kit. Outstanding detail at 1:32. I have included a few extras. a Montex canopy mask, a Yahu instrument panel, Model Master brass Hispano 20mm barrels, and a camo painting mask. You are on your way to a great build.
The basic Mk V was a Mk I with the Merlin 45 series engine. This engine delivered 1,440 hp (1,074 kW) at take-off, and incorporated a new single-speed single-stage supercharger design. Improvements to the carburetor also allowed the Spitfire to use zero gravity maneuvers without any problems with fuel flow.
Three versions of the Mk V were produced. The Vb became the main production version of the Mark Vs. Along with the new Merlin 45 series the B wing was fitted as standard. The majority of the Mk Vs were built at Castle Bromwich.
