Right now you'll have to do a lot of scratchin a Mk XVI in 1:32 scale, there's a lot of High back versions, all with short nose as in before the Mk VIII/IX , and one bubbletop Mk 22/24 from Matchbox supposedly to be released by AMT later again this year. So no easy way to do it in 1:32, but in 1:48 there might be, but that's not my scale!

ICM makes a 1/48 Spit XVI with bubble top, but clipped wings. You could use the wing tips off another Spit kit, maybe ICM's Mk.VIII.

I have built that Mk.16e kit, it includes the standard wingtips, it just tells you to commit them to the spares bin.

The MK 16 was externally identical to the MK IX, so any Mk IXe kit will work for your project.

While AMT released that kit in their boxing after Lesney bought them, Revell AG now owns all the Matchbox molds. I doubt they'd be able to re-issue it unless AMT had the mold stashed prior to the sale. AMT seems to be currently focusing on automotive subjects and having Italeri do the aircraft. hth
