You have to duck when you look at this gouache, like a movie scene! The Morane Saulnier MS.406C1 No. 846, 5th Escadrille, GC III/I, almost flies out of your painting!
The Morane Saulnier MS.406 was the most important French fighter in terms of quantity when the Germans invaded in 1940. Deliveries began in 1938 and ended in March 1940 with a total of 1,064 aircraft available to the Armeé de l’Air. With its Hispano Suiza engine of 860 hp it was underpowered and with an average pilot it was no match for the German Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter.

Hanging Instructions

How Do I Mount A Poster Into The Frame?

  1. Remove packaging from the frame and locate the small metal tabs on the back of the frame.
  2. Bend the tabs through 90º.
  3. Once all the tabs have been lifted out of the way, the rear of the frame can be removed and the picture inserted into the frame. Replace the back of the frame and bend the tabs back down to hold the frame in position.
