This is an aircraft art print.

A Ventura pounds its target in this relatively rare depiction of action by Koike.  The aircraft's sharp, smart lines are contrasted well by the fuzzy motion of the spray it has kicked up from the sea.  Used in many roles by many countries, the PV-1 and its close successors were versatile workhorses that could bomb land and sea targets, lead bomber formations with their radar and more.  Some versions mounted .50 cal. MGs in the nose and even HVAR rockets under the wings.

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 shipping
