Few aircraft have seen as many iterations as the Avro Anson. Originally designed as a fast, civilian airliner, it ended being used in dozens of different roles and configurations in military service, primarily in trainer and patrol/recon roles. One such trainer example is portrayed here in a work by Koike that emphasizes the plane's relatively unique lines against a relatively orthodox cloud backdrop. Over 11,000 Ansons were built and they served with distinction in various roles for nearly three decades, starting in the mid 1930s. Koike loves to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of aviation, such as the Anson, with beautiful renditions like this art.
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).
