This is an aircraft art print.
The almost clown-like red and yellow stripes on the nose and tail of the MB.152s in this painting are tactical recognition markings designed to make it easy to distinguish these Vichy French planes from the MB.152s flown by DeGaulle's Free French forces following the surrender to Germany. They also make for what must be one of Koike's most colorful paintings; you can find almost every color in the rainbow somewhere in the frame.
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).
