Mitsuhirato’s car from the adventure The Blue Lotus. Obviously his role as a spy and smuggling opium means you get to have a spiffing car like this. Check it out on page 20 as it speeds through the night with you know who clinging to the bumper!
Back in 2008 Moulinsart created a range of diecast 1/43 scale model cars, their collaborator was Editions Atlas. All seventy of the models came from the adventures of Tintin. Hergé’s evident love of cars, well actually all vehicles, real or imagined, came to life in this product range.
This new collection from Moulinsart from their collaboration with Hachette, a series of diecast 1/24 scale model cars. You will be thrilled by their appearance, they are bigger, yes twice the size, they shine like the sun, and the wheels do go round! And the detail is incredible, nothing is missed from Hergé’s masterful pen strokes.
Presented in a Perspex case, with a design on it to highlight the adventure, and a brochure in French and English.
