Tintin Red Willy's Jeep from Land of Black Gold - model car


By: TinTin

The Red Willys Jeep from the 1972 Tintin adventure Land of Black Gold. The Thompsons are about to fall asleep at the front whilst Snowy and Tintin are already fast asleep in the back.

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. This piece by Moulinsart  is part of their new collaboration with Hachette: a series of diecast 1/24 scale model cars. You'll be thrilled by their appearance: they're bigger -  yes twice the size! - they shine like the sun, and the wheels do go round! 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.
