Unlike planes, cars provide conveniences to travel from one city to the other. Throughout Tintin’s journey, he has taken various cars of different eras and had hijacked many more. From the Amilcar that appeared in Cigars of the Pharaoh to Opel Olympia found in King Ottokar’s Sceptre, many of which are based on their real-life counterpart.
All cars are made of metal and 1/24 in scale so they are bigger than their 1/43 counterpart but even then, it won’t take much space while providing iconic moments in Tintin’s history. It comes packaged in a shoe-like box with included booklet in English and French. More detailed, bigger and the wheels actually spin! Covering the cars will be an acrylic display with the background highlighting the adventure their in.
