Marcel Block MB.152

Product Description

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.
