Description

The Spitfire Mk XVI was the same as the Mk IX in nearly all respects except for the engine, a Merlin 266. All Mk XVI aircraft produced were of the Low-Altitude Fighter variety. This was determined by the engine, which had been optimised for low-altitude operation. All production Mk XVIs had clipped wings for low altitude work and were fitted with the rear fuselage fuel tanks with a combined capacity of 75 gal. Many Mk XVIs featured cut-down rear fuselages with "bubble" canopies. On these aircraft the rear fuselage tank capacity was limited to 66 gal. This book provides numerous colour photos of this classic aircraft. About the Series This is a classic series of highly illustrated books on the best machines of war, with several hundred photographs of each aircraft or vehicle. With close-up views of the key features of each machine, including its variations, markings and modifications, customising and creating a model has never been easier. Includes extra features such as decals and masking foil.show more
