One of Koike's great strengths is finding ways to make aircraft look their best, even when they may not be particularly great-looking planes. This dynamic view of the lumpy Fairey Gannet must be included as one of his finest efforts in that category. "While she probably lumbered, the plane looks rather ferocious and determined, plus there's that big belly which no doubt has something scary hidden within. I sure wouldn't want to have something like that after me." A close examination of this painting reveals remarkable levels of detail -- down to the individual instruments -- within the cockpit.
This print is reproduced on heavy art board just like the original, and sized identical to the original, measuring 400mm x 315mm (15.75 x 12.4 inches). It's offset printed, and the color reproduction has been approved by Koike himself. The art board measures 625mm x 453mm (24.6 x 17.83), giving you the freedom to have it framed as you would like. Each print is packed in a special sleeve inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box designed especially to prevent bending during international shipping (NOTE: These prints cannot be combined with other items for shipping, except for additional art prints; they will be shipped separately in their special packaging, even if ordered together with other items).
