EDK2117 1/72 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XVI Dual Combo
- Customer Reviews
There was also a similar Spitfire, the Mk XVI, which was powered by a Packard built Merlin engine, which is the subject of this set. By the time these entered service the Luftwaffe was a shadow of its former self, so most were employed as fighter-bombers.
Eduard are a Czech based manufacturer famed for their model accessories but they have in the last few years released a successful range of kits. The Profipacks contain a kit with several marking options, along with a Colour Zoom etch set, Canopy Mask and a full colour instruction booklet. This kit is highly detailed and quite possibly the best ever Spitfire kit in 1/72.
This limited Edition set contains 2 individual Spitfire Mk XVI kits. There are markings for 3 'highback' and 5 'bubbletop' RAF Spitfire XVI's and the set comes with the usual mask, colour zoom etch and glossy instruction booklet.
