An artistic print entitled "Take off in high spirits" found in the November 1944 issue of the vintage magazine "Koku Shonen". Created by artist Murakami Matsujiro it features a Kawanishi H8K "Emily" flying boat or as is more commonly known in Japan, "Nishiki Taitei" .

Very painterly, and quite nice. I see stuff like this and wonder what ever happened to the originals. However, given the destruction rained down on Japan late in the war, I have a reasonable idea of what could happen.
