If you’ve ever read a Tintin graphic novel, or admired the crisp line drawings of the character’s Belgian creator, Hergé, then you’ll love these nicely engineered miniatures.
But now the vehicles are more widely available, and many online retailers have them available to buy.
Features of the Tintin collectibles:
* Scale: 1/43
* Faithful reproduction
* Figurines included

French market advert (below) for the Tintin Jeep. When launched, this was sold at a deep discount price to hook buyers in for more. Actually, little to no hook would be required for this Tintin fan, as they are all excellent models.
For retro lovers, there's a 1950s-era Euro-bus and trailer available from Editions Atlas, here. It's a brilliant bit of modelling, as not only is a driver included, but there's also a full set of passengers, making it a very busy miniature coach, and a rare treasure among diecast models.
