Well, the exhaust pipes moulded onto the engine cylinders are wrong. They should go forward, toward the collector ring on the front of the cowling. The moulded engines are based on post-war Hercules engines like you would find on a Bristol Freighter.

Do all Mk.IIs have a bulged bomb bay, possibly with a turret at the aft end?  I don't see any parts to deal with that, appears to be just an engine (nacelle) change.

Not all of them had the bulged bomb bay and ventral turret. Depends on which exact aircraft is being modelled though.

Of course, always check photo references - don't just rely on profiles.
