A Ventura pounds its target in this relatively rare depiction of action by Koike. The aircraft's sharp, smart lines are contrasted well by the fuzzy motion of the spray it has kicked up from the sea. Used in many roles by many countries, the PV-1 and its close successors were versatile workhorses that could bomb land and sea targets, lead bomber formations with their radar and more. Some versions mounted .50 cal. MGs in the nose and even HVAR rockets under the wings.
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).
