 Laminated USAAF Warbirds WWII Poster 24x36 Scaled
by Feenix Publishing
 
  This magnificent poster faithfully presents all the aircraft widely used by the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II. Each has been meticulously researched to provide the best possible representation of the airplane. They include the famous B-17 Memphis Belle, the first bomber to complete 25 missions over Germany; Lt. Colonel Jimmy Doolittles
   B-25, which flew off of the aircraft carrier Hornet to bomb Tokyo in one of the most daring raids of the war; a P-40 of the immortal Flying Tigers; and the Enola Gay, the B-29 that dropped the first atomic bomb. Some of the other aircraft are not as well known. The twin-engine P-38 Pudgy was flow by Major Thomas B. McGuire. He was the top American ace of WWII. He shot down 38 enemy aircraft in the Pacific theater. Colonel Francis "Gabby" Gabreski was the top ace in the European theater. Flying a P-47 Thunderbolt, he was credited with 34 kills.
   Aircraft are usually shown in profile, as the images are relatively easy to prepare and are more compact. This permits more to be shown in limited space. The P-38 Lighting had twin booms, and the B-47 Stratojet introduced swept back wings and nacelle hung engines, the design used by almost all future airliners. These important body and wing designs cannot be shown in profile views.
   To overcome this, Feenixx introduces an exciting new approach to aircraft presentation. Each military aircraft title focuses on a specific subject, and shows all of the appropriate aircraft. They are presented in perspective, all from the same low angle using the same directional lighting. They are also sized to the same scale. When superimposed over a common sky background, it creates the illusion that they are flying overhead in formation. This makes it very easy to visually compare their size and design.
   These posters also contain a highly detailed chart citing the specifications and performance characteristics of each aircraft, making them easy to compare.
   All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. It is also a very hard paper that preserves tiny details. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subect. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject. 
   This poster is laminated and, therefore, requires no frame. All posters measure 24" x 36". This standard size fits inexpensive, off the shelf frames if you wish to frame this poster.
