Shigeo Koike Art Print: Douglas DC-4 Transport

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

In the years following World War II, as normal passenger service resumed, the market for large passenger aircraft quickly became a face-off between the Douglas DC-4 and the Lockheed Constellation.  "Everybody says the Connie is very attractive, but nobody says they think the DC-4 is beautiful," says Koike, with clear dissatisfaction.  "In the DC-4, I get a sense of the good ol' dependable American era.  The way its nose is scrunched vertically is charming and I think its got an honest beauty about it overall," he offers in support.  His painting of the plane shows a beautiful Pan Am DC-4 "Clipper Racer" soaring over a sea of clouds, reflecting the white and blue.  

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).
