Bravo Delta Models (001) - Supermarine Spitfire Mk 16 Winston Churchill - Scale Model Aircraft, complete with display stand. Scale 1:28, length 15"/381mm, span 19"/483mm, height 4"/102mm.
The Mk 16 was identical to the Mk 9 in nearly all respects except for the engine, a Merlin 266. The Merlin 266 was the Merlin 66 and was built under licence in the USA by the Packard Motor Company. The '2' was added as a suffix in order to avoid confusion with the engines, as they required different tooling.
All Mk 16 aircraft produced were of the Low-Altitude Fighter (LF) variety. This was not determined by the length of the wings (clipped wings were fitted to most LF Spitifres), but by the engine, which had been built for low-altitude work. All production Mk 16s had clipped wings for low altitude work. Many 16s featured cut-down rear fuselages and were fitted with bubble canopies.
