Shigeo Koike Art Print: Vought F4U-5N Corsair

by  HobbyLink Japan
Product Description
This item is an aircraft art print.   Click here for sizing chart.

This gorgeous two-for-one tribute to the fantastic Vought Corsair somehow manages to seem colorful even though blue tones dominate both the fore and background of the work.  "It's a very unique, and very attractive airplane," says Koike.  "The nose gets even longer and bulges a bit more beginning with the dash-5, giving the plane's lines even more sexiness."  The twist in this painting is that NP 21/Annie Mo in the background, flown by Lt. Guy Bordelon, is far more famous than NP 24/Yokosuka Queen, flown by Lt. Ralph Hopson, in the foreground.  Both were with VC-3 Det. D stationed on the USS Princeton during the Korean War.

 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).
