Totally agree that Mark 58 stuff is really good and worth its price

To add a bit to what Jean-Luc posted here are some pix:







This is Jean-Luc's diorama, who designed much of the Africa stuff now available at Mark 58:



Two models of yours truely on Mark 58 plates:





And there are also such things as a tend in the Mark 58 programme:



not to forget my WIP on one of the Mark58 Shelter types:

P.S. If you think I am advertizing Marc's stuff .. you are right .. but just because this is good, I win nothing with that

Truly amazing bases. my only problem would being able to do them justice with my (sometimes lacking) painting and weathering abilities

I would love some of these bases for my collection - especially my German WWII birds. The only problem is that he only accepts Paypal.
I had some problems with Paypal in the past and deleted my paypal account. Do you know any internet stores selling Mark 58 products where I can obtain them?

Hi Jesper

sorry I missed you first question. Why don't you just contact Marc. I think bank transfer (SWIFT, IBAN, BIC) is no problem, as this should be without fees inside Europe.

I am pretty satisfied with paypal ..but I do not need to get money over this medium. I have read it is pretty expensive.

all the best

Steffen

Hi Allen and Jesper,

If you are interested in some of the products made by Mark58, like Steffen, I would suggest you to contact Marc Toillié directly via e-mail. He will give you any information you need. Allen, Mark58 also sells already painted bases but, really, painting them is so easy! Again, only a wash is needed.

These bases open up a whole new catagory of possibilities to modeling. They are really great pieces. I've been looking at his website and I'm really impressed. Just wish I could read French!

You don't have to. At the left, there is a menu bar with three flags. If you want to have the text in English, just click on the appropriate one:
