The crash scene from a beloved Tintin story

The cover art of one of the best Tintin stories is perfectly recreated here in LEGO by Dark Small. If you’ve never read anything from the Tintin series, you should. The adventures of the clever young man, told in a comic book style, are fun and heartwarming. And one of the most heartwarming stories of all is Tintin in Tibet. This installment has the hero and his comrades searching the mountains for a plane crash in hopes to find and rescue his lost friend.

As you can see, this LEGO-ized version of the original artwork is excellent. The build would be lovely if it weren’t based on an image, but this attempt at being as close to the art as possible is nicely executed. I’m particularly fond of that propeller in front.

We have actually covered a few other Tintin LEGO builds. Stick around and check them out!
