Hi all!

Last summer Marc Toillié from Mark 58 introduced me in the fine Art of painting and weathering his own 1/48 scale display bases. Below you can see a picture with the Master and his student (right)...



The good news for Aeroscale members is that M. Toillié kindly donated the result of our combined efforts for a Give Away! Every member has the possibility to win one of the three following bases:
- PSP base U.S. style 1/48 scale
- Wooden planking base Luftwaffe style 1/48 scale
- Metal plates Japanese style 1/48 scale



All you have to do is find the Mystery Plane. Regularly I will post more and more details of an aircraft and the first to give me the name of it will win the base of his choice (shipping is free).
The rules are simple: every member of the KitMaker Network can participate (except Staff Members of course ) but only one answer between two picture updates is allowed. Please ask no questions about the Mystery Plane, only post answers.
The first winner will have the choice between the three bases. The winner of the second Mystery Plane contest will have the choice between the two remainding bases and the last winner will take what's left. The same person can win two or even three bases if he/she finds the right answers.

Ok, let's start with the first Mystery Plane...



If you have already an answer, you can post it here. If your guess is wrong, nothing will happen but you will have to wait for the next picture update to post again. If your answer is right you win a Mark 58 display base. The picture is a drawing from a Comic book...

Good luck to all!

Hi all!

Ok, maybe it is a bit difficult so I give you one hint, it's a japanes aircraft but you probably already figured it out.

Here are some more details...



You can make wild guesses and who knows maybe you are lucky!

Hello everyone,

My completely insane wild guess is a H8 Emily Flying Boat. Now I must hide in the corner.

Sincerely,
Brian

Hi all!

No, it's not a Kawanishi-H8K-Emily...

Andrew and Brian have made a guess. Does somebody else has an idea?

the more I look at it the more I get the feeling that it's Catalina in Japanese markings

Btw, the 1st photo shows the Master and the Student (the blonde one beneath the table), but what do you do there, Jean-Luc?

The Plane is a Kawanishi E11K1, and the image is from the Biggles comic book number 9, In dutch the title is "de 13e tand van de duivel" freelee translated it is The 13Th tooth of the devil.

We have a first winner!



The first Mystery Plane is a Kawanishi E11K1 and the picture was indeed taken from a Biggles comic book. Congratulation Léon, you can choose one Mark 58 display base of your choice and PM me your adress. I will start another Mystery Plane contest tomorrow. Thanks to all who have participated so far!

Jean-Luc

P.S. The next one won't be a picture from a Biggles comic!

Hi all!

Léon chose the Luftwaffe style base...



For the next Mystery Plane contest the winner will have the choice between the PSP and the Japanese bases. Below is the next aircraft to find...



Good luck to all!

Nieuport 11 /16 or 17 ... I know too few about the sub types (bisides that I am certainly wrong )

I also would have chosen the LW base congratulations Leon

cheers

I will post some more details tomorrow...

Jean-Luc,
Sorry for the O/T, but does your friend sell these bases outright? I'd like to purchase a couple of those Luftwaffe bases. PM me please.
Thanks.

Hi Ion!

Not off topic at all. In fact I should have started with that...

The products of Marc Toillié are available directly from the manufacturer, just send him an e-mail for infos and prices ([email protected]). Mark 58 is a registred company by the way, every product has a reference number and you will get an invoice if you buy something. PayPal is accepted.

If you want to see all the procuct range of Mark 58, go here: Mark 58
Unfortunately only the french version of the website is available but there are some great pictures to watch, including new concrete bases for Vietnam subjects in 1/48 scale. Other bases in 1/72 and 1/32 are also planned.

You can also see some of his products in this thread: Display Bases in 1/48 scale

Let's go back to the Mystery Plane contest...



Jean-Luc

P.S. Steffen, you can make another guess now...

We have our second winner!



James, you can send me a PM and tell me what display base you want (PSP or Japanese). Don't forget to include your adress. But before you do that, please tell us how the hell you managed to find the right answer! Do you have some sort of KGB or CIA software?

Needless to say, the last Mystery Plane will be MUCH MORE difficulte to find!

Jean-Luc

P.S. I just noticed it was the left foot in fact...

Haha well mate im not that bad after all! i am a plane geek! I was looking for 45 minutes and went through my books that mum gets me (heaps of books on world aircraft). once you posted the second clue i noticed some things like the engine and Yes, that foot...... so i decided to go through the whole world war 1-2 aircraft book again and on the first page i noticed a picture that looks like some of the features in the second clue. then i just looked it up on wikipedia and that exact picture was there .

and no mate i dont have anny special software its thanks to my mum and the old book with alot of plane pictures in it

Thanks Marc Toillié & Jean-Luc

Hi all!

James chose the japanese style base...



The last base to win is the PSP one. You can put many Allied aircraft on it (P-51, P-47, Corsair, Hellcat, Spitfire, Typhoon etc...) as well as many post war subjects.

Here's the last Mystery Plane...



This is the last chance for you to win a Mark 58 display base, so don't hesitate to make wild guesses!

Hi SteFFen!

Now the question is: does she wear a bikini?
