Fairey Gannet AS.1

Product Description

One of Koike's great strengths is finding ways to make aircraft look their best, even when they may not be particularly great-looking planes.  This dynamic view of the lumpy Fairey Gannet must be included as one of his finest efforts in that category.  "While she probably lumbered, the plane looks rather ferocious and determined, plus there's that big belly which no doubt has something scary hidden within.  I sure wouldn't want to have something like that after me."  A close examination of this painting reveals remarkable levels of detail -- down to the individual instruments -- within the cockpit.
