The Golden Fleece
Released in France on December 6, 1961, Tintin and the Adventures of the Golden Fleece is set in Turkey and Greece. The main characters; Tintin, and Captain Haddock are in search of treasure after inheriting the Golden Fleece ship. After Captain Haddock inherits the ship, he travels to Turkey only to find out the ship is in fact an old cargo ship, with little value. Despite this, Captain Haddock is offered a large sum of money from a businessman, claiming he wants the ship for ‘sentimental’ value. Suspicious of his motives, Captain Haddock and Tintin set off on an adventure in search of the true meaning of their inherited ship.
The Golden Fleece Model Ship
The range of sailing ships featured in the Adventures of Tintin is iconic. These adventures can now be relived with a pre-made model of the ship from the expedition. The sail plans and fittings are exact replicas of the original. Tintin’s sailing ship model combines a traditional hull shape with a noble wooden configuration style. The parts are designed and cut to meet a high standard of quality. Once made, the hull is sanded and smoothed. To finish the prefabricated model, several coats of varnish are applied to achieve an immaculate finish.
Our manufacturers are committed to producing quality ship models, hence each stage of the construction process is carefully monitored and controlled. The team is made up of master craftsmen who work diligently using the traditional skills of plank-on-frame construction. These skills have been developed over many years to create detailed and accurate models of various vessels.
