In many ways, the K series of the Bf109 was the penultimate version of the plane, with enormous engine power provided by a DB605, and devastating armament. Unfortunately for Germany, this great fighter arrived too late to make a meaningful difference in the course of the war. The 109 is, of course, the most iconic German plane of WWII, being in service in Spain before the main war in Europe began, and flying until the surrender. In this Koike painting, though, the extremely unique purple evening (or is that morning?) sky almost takes your attention away from the German super-fighter in this work from 1993.
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).
