    Default HERGÉ, TINTIN and Airplanes

    The original airplanes that the famous Belgian cartoonist Hergé used to draw them in the Tintin albums.
    On this site a similar comparison of the original planes and their representation in each album.

    The Hergé studio has also published 2 books on the planes until 1914 and those of the Second World War, each plane being decorated with a drawing of Tintin in uniform or in costume of the time.

    Also there is An illustrated history of Hergé's aircraft - from Tintin to Jo, Zette and Jocko by Frank Griese and Richard Humberstone
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    The Sunderland in this series is close to 1/200, and is a good candidate for a paint job.
