If you're going to paint a P-38, you can't go wrong painting one of the aircraft of Richard Bong, America's top ace of WWII, with 40 kills. Bong was probably the first man to ever use an actual photograph -- of course of his wife Marge -- for his nose art, and that's faithfully reproduced in this fine Koike rendition. The P-38 is one of the iconic warplanes of the Second World War, superb in not only the standard fighter role (and probably the only two-engine plane that can make that claim, but also as a night-fighter, long-range escort and reconnaissance platform.
This print is reproduced on heavy art board and sized identically 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 17.8 inches), leaving white borders around the image to give you the freedom to have it framed as you please. The prints are packed in a special sleeve inside a sturdy shipping box designed to prevent any bending while on their way to you (for this reason, they cannot be combined with other types of items for shipping, they will be shipped separately, even if ordered with other items).
