Tintin Moon Rocket . My first attempt at a large model, I hope you like it! . This baby is 185 cm tall (that's 6'1''), and about 14 000 parts. No glue or non-Lego elements in it. Hi-res pictures here. A little souvenir-shot with our main protagonists, Tintin and Haddock. You can see the (sadly black) technic pins in the fins. The rocket with Tintin, Milou (Snowy) and me. To be fair, I'm a little behind the rocket, I'm actually a bit taller than it. :-) With the airlock door open and ladder deployed... ...And yes, there is an interior! Docking bay doors open and a two-storey panel goes off to reveal the cabin and flight deck. Family picture! All the passengers, from left to right : Dupond (Thompson), Dupont (Thomson) with their hair problem, Captain Haddock and his whisky, Tintin, Milou (Snowy), Pr. Tournesol (Calculus), Engineer Wolff the coward and the infamous Colonel Jorgen. * * * Fourth wall This thing is the main reason why I posted so few builds last year. It took hundreds of hours to design, sort parts and build. It also had to be divisible into handleable sections. There will be more posts about the construction, interior and details, but let's say that I tried to stay as true to the comic as possible, be it for the general shape or interior design. About the scale : Based on the width of an airlock door, which is rather wide in the comic, we can use the proportion 4 studs = 96 cm. That's a 1:30 scale. Thus we have a "real life" height for the rocket of 1,85 x 30 = 55,5 m. It seems consistent with what we can see in the comic. Thanks for watching, see ya!
