This high-angle portrayal of a Macchi MC.200 almost gives the viewer a sense of vertigo; Koike's brilliant rendering of the details on the plane and the ground below clearly shows off the vast distance between them, and implies the huge strategic advantage the Saetta has over the prey in its sights. Seeing more action during WWII than any other Italian fighter, the MC.200 had excellent maneuverability and performance, but was underpowered, an issue that was corrected in its even more capable successors, the MC.202 and MC.205.
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).
