Despite its unusually plump fuselage design (earning it the nickname of "the whale"), the Roland C II was an early war hit for the Germans, being used in recon. and light bombing roles. While the painting is perhaps purposely vague, it would appear that the two Rolands seen here have just attacked something, in a rare suggestion of action in a Koike painting. Compositions like this, where the observer is "hovering" over the aircraft and the ground can convey a fantastic sense of depth and perspective.
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).
