Shigeo Koike Art Print: Mitsubishi Type 99 Reconnaissance Plane

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

Koike has chosen deep green foliage for his "sea" in this fine rendition of a Ki-51, a.k.a. the Type 99 Recon or Assault Plane, a.k.a. the "Sonia" in Allied code name parlance.  This could be Burma, perhaps, one of the major theaters in which the type saw action, where it was frequently used quite successfully in ground-attack missions from poor airfields.  Unusual for a Japanese plane, the type was heavily armored to protect the crew from ground fire during low-level missions.

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).
