I have a Matchbox Vickers Wimpy Mk X, I want to make into B for Bertie from One of Our Aircraft is Missing...

Any suggestions on what has to be done to bring the aircraft around to a MK1C?

Your worst problem will be the windows. Mk.I Wimpys had a long window strip rather than the Mk.III style provided in the kit. The MPM kit is an option if you can find one. Airfix also has a MK.I in their new releases this year.
