Rumpler C.V. -Vintage Collotype Print by Howard Leigh - Matted & Ready to Frame
Howard Leigh was a successful aviation illustrator of the 1930's and was brother to Doris Leigh - Capt. W.E. John's (of Biggles fame) lifetime companion - his drawings capture perfectly the symmetry of the aircraft of the war period.
This beautiful print is at least 77 years old & is presented in a double mount
The Rumpler C.V was, perhaps, one of the best known German machines of its type. Produced by the Rumpler Werke Co,, at the commencement of 1918, it was used for photography, reconnaissance, artillery spotting, and as a two-seater fighter.It had the same characteristic horn type of exhaust of all Rumplers, extending up to the leading edge of the top wing.The armament consisted of one fixed Spandau gun, mounted inside the cowling on the starboard side of the engine, and a Parabellum gun mounted over the rear cockpit.The power unit was a 260 h.p. Mercedes engine, which gave the machine a speed of just over 100 m.p.h. at 10,000 feet.
The print itself measures just 4.25 inches x 5.25 inches & is mounted in a double mount measuring 7 inch x 9 inch ready to drop in to a standard size frameA stunning First World War aviation action print which when framedwould grace any wall & be the subject of much admiration I am sure. - An inspired gift for any gentleman -
I will be listing a series of these prints depicting aircraft of a similar period
