F/A-18A Classic Hornet - Magnetic Island

  • No Boring Walls

    What’s your plan for that empty wall? You know the one - that plain off-white rectangle with a whole lot of nothing going on. You’ve been putting it off since you moved in because you’re not quite sure where to buy art, and the thought of hanging some generic “Live, Laugh, Love” print from the Home section of Kmart keeps you up at a night.

    Retropilot offers unique aviation-themed artwork that is specifically designed to fill that white void of yours. All our designs are crisp, unique and eye-catching - they look fantastic as feature prints, and they quickly become a talking point wherever they are displayed. Designed by a RAAF pilot and made in Australia, you’re investing in premium quality artwork that will take centre-stage when guests are over.

    Canvas Prints

    We love canvas. It’s modern, pops off the wall and is great value for money. Your print is built to last and won’t fade, warp or stretch over time. Choose "No Frame" for a full canvas wrap-around (where the image wraps around the edges of the print - trés chic) or, for a seriously deluxe finish that will impress your Mum, go for the floating frame option in Timber or Black. All canvas prints will arrive ready to hang on your wall.

    Framed Art Prints

    Our Framed Art Prints are classy AF - when you see your print for the first time you’ll actually feel weak at the knees. Sales talk aside - they are truly stunning and instantly jazz up a boring room. All our Art Prints arrive fully framed and ready to hang with the options of stylish timber-look or black frames for you to choose from.

  • Our Canvases and Framed Art Prints come in the following sizes:

    45 x 30cm

    75 x 50cm

    90 x 60cm

    120 x 80cm

    135 x 90cm

    180 x 120cm

    Please note that for Framed Art Prints, the listed size is that of the print itself. There is an additional 7cm of frame and matting on each side of the print (so add 14cm to the height and the width for the total size).

    Getting your print size right is almost as important as the design itself. Retropilot isn't disposable Kmart artwork - your print will be a centre-piece for many years to come, so we think it's important that you pick your size based on what will look fantastic, rather than what will save you a few dollars in the short term.

    We have written an in-depth guide about picking the right size artwork for your space which contains handy rules of thumb to help you decide. We’re not trying to up-sell you here - in fact, we actually make less profit on our larger prints! We truly just want you to pick the best size for you space. Click here to read our size guide.

  • Materials

    Our canvas material is Polyester based, which does not sag or fade over time. You can clean the canvas by dusting it lightly, but avoid wiping the canvas with anything damp as this could damage your print. We always recommend that you simply avoid touching the canvas altogether - if you have oily fingers you’ll leave a mark.

    All our frames are made from a highly compressed foam board (the industry standard). It is almost impossible to tell that our timber-look frame isn’t actual timber, and the black frame is matte and sleek. You'll love either, we guarantee it. If you can’t decide which frame to go with - choose the timber option.

    Our framed art prints are made using acrylic, not glass. Acrylic is lighter, easier to work with, and does not shatter.

    If you are hanging your print(s) on a wall, we recommend using wall plugs (or screws into timber studs where available). If you’re a first-time picture hanger (or don’t know what a wall plug is), we recommend you do a bit of Googling before you put anything into your walls. Some of our larger prints are quite heavy and will not stay on your wall for long if they are not hung properly. If you get really stuck, just send us an email and we’ll help you out!
