Yes... but the points marked + and - are not the same, which limits the usefulness.
Installing and using LTspice IV. From beginner to advanced.

The 2 + points are at the same potential.


If it ain't broke, break it !! Then fix it again. It's called DIY !

The two plus points (and the two minus points) are at the same potential only more or less because the diode drops won't be exactly the same. Might as well parallel the windings and use a single bridge.
