There is no such thing as too many 3-view drawings of the Supermarine Spitfire. This is the Mark 2 (Mk 2, or Mk II) version, inked by Leonard Wieczorek. According to the Wikipedia entry, Supermarine manufactured 24 variants (Mark, or Mk) of the Spitfire which included various combinations of engines and airframe configurations. A trainer version was amongst them. Some online accounts claim the Spitfire Mk II, with its 12-cylinder Rolls Royce Merlin engine, made its maiden flight on March 5, 1936. That means it was functional prior to the mid-1940 Battle of Britain, the event that put the Spitfire in the history books as formidable dogfighter in the hands of a skilled and valiant pilot. The Spitfire Mk V model, put into service in late 1940, was the most-produced, and last unpressurized version.
