Seeking: Tintin model scenes or dioramas

#1 · Posted: 7 Mar 2005 14:45
A few years ago someone was selling some Tintin based dioramas on Ebay. I can't remember much about them but I think they came flat packed and were designed to be made up so they were probably printed on card. When made up they were models of scenes, including buildings, based on one of the books. Possibly they may have been intended as playsets or displays for Tintin figures or vehicles.
Does this ring a bell with anyone? I'd appreciate any information as to who manufactured them. How many were produced? What they were officially called etc.

If memory serves me right, there were two cardboard sets produced by Esso (the petrol company) in 1972, I think, to coincide with the release of "Tintin and the Lake of Sharks" at cinemas. The two scenes were the underwater base of Rastapopoulos, and the villa that Calculus is living in. I'm afraid I don't know what the sets were officially called, though.
