***** These four foot wide "High Definition" prints were created to be reproduced at this width. This is the reason for the excellent detail, sharpness and color saturation that you'll see in every print. These are the most detailed aviation prints at this size you can find!
The Pitts Special (company designations S1 and S2) is a series of light aerobatic biplanes designed by Curtis Pitts. It has accumulated many competition wins since its first flight in 1944. The Pitts biplanes dominated world aerobatic competition in the 1960s and 1970s and, even today, remain a potent competition aircraft in the lower categories. Curtis Pitts began the design of a single-seat aerobatic biplane in 19431944. The design has been refined continuously since the prototype's first flight in September 1944, however, the current Pitts S2 still remains quite close to the original in concept and in design. Several of the aircraft that Curtis Pitts built had a picture of a skunk on them and were called "Stinkers". After she bought it, aerobatic performer Betty Skelton called the second aircraft that Curtis built, "Lil' Stinker". The prototype S-2, which was the first two-seat Pitts, was "Big Stinker", the prototype Model 11 (later called S1-11B) was "Super Stinker", and the prototype Model 12 was the "Macho Stinker".
How They're Printed - His four foot wide (HD) mural prints are not printed using any inks.
To reproduce the fantastic detail and saturated color, these aviation images are printed using actual red, green and blue lasers that can produce 68 billion colors. The lasers project the image on actual photographic material and then is processed through chemical baths. This gives you a TRUE HIGH DEFFINITON (HD) CONTINUOUS TONE IMAGE with no dots like you see in offset lithography printing. This printing method is far superior in detail and color depth than any other reproduction method.
We offers these prints on two types of (HD) Archival material... or Canvas
✔ One... A very high gloss for the best detail and color saturation ✔ Two... A semi-gloss for a very sharp and more muted feeling ✔ Three... On canvas. These canvas prints are printed with archival quality inks onto a unique impregnated glossy canvas media. This allows for the highest color saturation and detail you can achieve in a canvas print. The Giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction on canvas. The quality of the Giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
