Will add more once I get started.

Not sure about the spinner - I thought it might be Sky or white? Definitely not yellow - compare with the yellow in the roundel!

With regards to a Mk Ib, I would have thought using a Mk Vb kit to be the best way of modelling one. The only major external difference between the two being the shape of the oil cooler inlet - half-round on the Mk I and circular on the Mk V. Otherwise it will have a De Havilland propeller, 'straight' exhaust stubs and flat-sided canopy like all other Mark Ia Spitfires. I would regard Aeromaster's depiction of the 609 Sqn Mk I as having a 'blunt' (i.e. Rotol) spinner with suspicion.

The roundel yellow looks similar to the spinner and the 'K' is much lighter than the 'QV'. It shows how difficult colour interpretation from monochrome prints can be. I would've thought there is no doubt about the codes being grey, but the question of the spinner is very interesting.
