    World War II Propaganda Film Spitfire Production Cel and Master Production Background (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). An original hand-painted cel featuring a US Spitfire-type fighter plane, on a master hand-painted production background. This is from one of the many Disney World War II Propaganda films, possibly from Victory Through Airpower (1943). Great full image of the plane in flight, with a size of 7". Background setups of this caliber for Disney World War II films are considered very rare. Attractively framed with glass; matted with an opening size of 9" x 9.5" with an overall frame size of 15.5" x 16". Very Good condition.

    More Information: UPDATE: The plane has been identified as a USN Wildcat from the Pacific area of operations. Sorry for the confusion.
