Portraying a night fighter at night in a painting is, to say the very least, a very difficult task. But here's another genius example of how Koike brilliantly uses color. The A-7 was the final production version of the He219, but there were only around 300 Uhus produced to begin with. Still, the plane was packed with the latest technology (including the world's first ejection seat), but by the time production was ramped up, Germany's ability to produce engines was already beginning to shrivel. While records are sparse, there are reports that the A-7 made effective use of its four 20mm and two 30mm cannons.
This original painting is acrylic on heavy art board. The board measures 54cm x 39cm, and the painted area is approximately 45cm x 33.5cm.
