The CJ2A Willys Jeep – “Destination Moon” (1953) Hergé was inspired by the Willys CJ2A to draw the Destination Moon Jeep (see page 41). A great vehicle to display Professor Calculus’s driving skills, not sure his passengers feel that comfortable
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.
Today 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.
Material: Painted metal with resin and plastic.
