Shigeo Koike Art Print: Douglas AD-5 (A-1E) Skyraider

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

Koike says he's always admired the design, and the utility, of the Skyraider, particularly when considering all the oddly-shaped aircraft that came before and after it, often meant to perform only a subset of the duties possible with this highly capable plane.  "I like the AD-5, and rather than the full gray which I've drawn many times for box art, I wanted to draw a pretty girl in midnight blue wrapped with a red polka-dot ribbon."  The aircraft he choose is a plane of Marine attack squadron VMA-322 seen around 1955.

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).
