Nice but I have already built EE-H from the first new tool issue using Aviaeology decals for it... but another wouldn.t go amiss

Googled:

The only serial version of the Beaufighter that flew Merlin in-line engines was the Mk.IIF version. Manufacturers of plastic models mass-produce only versions with Hercules star engines. For those who want to have something ordinary at home, our prepared sets will probably make you happy. In 1/72 scale they will be designed for the Airfix model and in 1/48 scale for the Revell model. There will be two sets for each scale, the Beaufighter Mk.IIF 'Early Exhausts' Conversion Set and the Beaufighter Mk.IIF 'Late Exhausts' Conversion Set. The difference will be engine nacelles with different designs of exhausts and also camouflage. Sets will contain decals.

Excellent!  I always liked the looks of the inline Beaus.

Noice! Have to have a bit of that - one of the UK-based RAAF Squadrons (464, from memory) had Beaufighter IIs before they went onto Mosquitos.
