Many brands have the custom of making several versions of an airplane... In this case, Airfix took its perfect newly developed Spitfire and make the 1a version. The sprues in the several versions of mk1, mk1a, mk2a are the same, what changes is was you do with them. Use the constant pitch propeller and the simpler antenna and you have a Mk1. Use the constant speed/variable pitch propeller with the bulky spinner, and you have a mk1a (a late mk1, the a, b, c is related with the wing: a) could carry 8 machine guns, the b) was for 2 cannons/2 machine guns, and the c) could take either of them. ) put the thinner spinner, the other canopy, and you have a Mk2. Just choose what version you want and use the proper decals. This box is related with a late mk1a. Appart from that, the model is perfect with astonishing detail! a nice clean build!
