The Lockheed Vega is a humble-looking little airplane, and Koike's straight-forward illustration is a fine tribute that doesn't attempt to turn up the volume unnaturally. But for aircraft fans, that's unnecessary, as the Vega's place in aviation history was sealed long ago by its record-setting exploits under the hand of famed pilots like Wiley Post and Amelia Earhart.
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).
