The Thompson’s come to an abrupt stop in their 2CV from the 1960 adventure The Calculus Affair. We are not informed why, just bad driving but it does give a clear image of the car and we are treated to some of Captain Haddock’s ….Road-hog…Steam-roller!…Bully!…Dipsomaniac!…Nitwit!
In 2008 Moulinsart created a range of diecast 1/43 scale model cars, their collaborator then 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.
We are launching with the permission of Moulinsart their new 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.
They come in a clear Perspex case, that has a design on it to highlight the adventure, along with a brochure in French and English.
