The Mk. II was another substantial improvement in the Spitfire development thanks to the more powerful Merlin XII engine rated at 1150 hp (857 kW). The Mk.II was also fitted with a pyrotechnical starter. To fit it under the engine cowling, a small bulge had to be added to the right-side engine cowling.
The Spitfire Mk.II retained the armament of the Mk.I, while Mk.IIb had the same weaponry as the Mk.Ib, i.e. four cannons Hispano-Suiza of the 20mm calibre. There were 921 Spitfires of Mk.II variant produced, all manufactured at Castle Bromwich factory.
This the Eduard ProfiPack Edition of the Spitfire Mk. IIb. It includes the PE, paint mask and decal sheet shown.
