The Haddock Convertible Lincoln Zephyr from The 7 Crystal Balls (1948). Enraged by the kidnapping of Professor Calculus, Captain Haddock gathers all his energy when the police informs him that a car mechanic has seen the kidnappers’ car go towards Saint-Nazaire (see page 54). He sets off to track them down along with Tintin and Snowy. The only car ever owned by Haddock, the Lincoln Zephyr is among the first aerodynamic models of the 1930s, you can see his evident pride in it! The car comes in a clear perspex case, that has a design on it to highlight the adventure, along with a brochure in French and English.
Moulinsart in their new collaboration with Hachette have released 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.
