Has any one attempted designing Adventures of Tintin themed Legos?

I read all the Tintin books, and watched the movie. It is similar to Indiana Jones and the classic Lego Adventurers. So many adventurous places, temples, buildings, planes, cars and tanks you could built. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried building any of them?

    I believe that @bluemoose‌ has constructed at least one Tintin MOC (the rocket from Destination Moon), so he might be a good starting point for inspiration :o)

    I'll be building more Tintin models as time allows :-)

    There is a Tintin Lego flickr group -
    but it isn't particularly well stocked with models.

    There are a few others around ... this unfinished supersonic jet from "Flight 714" is particularly notable.

    Love it. Has anybody done the ship from Red Rackham's treasure, The Unicorn.

    My favourite Tintin story is the 7 Crystal Balls/Prisoners of the Sun 2 parter. I should add the temple from that to my (very long) list of possible future mocs :-)

    The Japanese 'nanoblock' company released some sets when the Tintin movie came out a couple of years ago - the moon rocket, the shark submarine, Marlinspike/Moulinsart Hall, and The Unicorn.

    Well time to read some Tintin books and get busy on Lego Digital Designer. :)

    I like the Black island and the South American adventures. Not sure about the exact titles.

    I grow up on Tintin, while it would make great sets from some of the buildings, "action" area and a few vehicles, I am unsure how popular they would be in the US.

    While I like the vast majority of the books, Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon comes to mind.

    @MinifigsMe‌ has some custom Tintin figures on their website now, I believe.
    There's plenty of Indiana Jones/Pharaoh's Quest/Classic Adventurers cars/planes/trucks that would make a great starting point. For me, the period feel was what always made Tintin so great.

    ^ The torsos for the figs to go with my rocket came from Caroline and Nick at MinifigsMe. They did them for me for the STEAM show last year. My Snowy/Milou is brick built.
