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

Description

This is an aircraft art print.

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).
