Supermarine Napier S.5. 1928


Flt Lt D’Arcy Greig sitting atop the stunning Supermarine Napier S.5. in 1928. At R.A.F. Calshot Seaplane Station.

The Supermarine S.5. was designed by renowned designer Reginald Mitchel. Specifically built for the purpose of competing in the Schneider cup race, which it won in 1927. The aircraft would prove many of the design ideas, that Mitchell and his team would go on to use in the famous Supermarine Spitfire.

Frame Colour & finish

The paper is Fotospeed Platinum Baryta 100% acid free Fine Art paper 300gsm

The images are Giclée fine art prints, which is a printing technique which involves spraying microscopic pigments onto high-quality paper to reproduce artwork for print or display. As Giclée printing uses pigment-based ink, rather than dyes, it creates vivid, fade-resistant colours.


Our images are professionally framed, and ready to hang. With 30 years experience, each image is presented in a responsibly sourced hard wood frame, with wood backing. All images are framed in a way that prevents warping, U.V. damage, Yellowing with age, or movement within the mount. Nylon cord, securely attached to the rear can be hung on solid, wall mounted fixings. Two felt protective pads are attached to both bottom corners to protect walls and the frame from marking or paint transfer.


To protect our prints from light damage and bleaching, we present them behind a layer of cast acrylic. A high quality material, it offers many benefits: including 92% optical clarity and 90% UV protection. What is more, as it is shatter-resistant, it is much safer than glass in your home or workplace, and reduces the likelihood of damage during shipping.

Packaging & Shipping

Each image is carefully packaged in bubble wrap, with foam edge protecters, and then boxed.

Usually ships within 3 days, to anywhere in the world.

Due to the fragile nature of these items they do not qualify for free shipping.

Image quality

Every image has been handled and printed to afford the highest possible definition, and vividness off colour. However the images are historic, and do show signs of either their age, quality of the equipment used to capture the image, or the conditions at the time.
