The ‘Gabriel Model T Ford’ (no 109) was the everyday run about of Father Stanley Unwin from the Gerry Anderson ‘Secret Service’ series, though the same vehicle was also seen in a couple of episodes of the later ‘UFO’ series.
The 1/43 rd scale yellow and black model featured a figure of Unwin at the wheel and ‘Gabriel’ labels on each body side. Due to the model only being available for two years, and the series only being shown in three ITV regions, the Gabriel Model T is rare, especially when compard with other Anderson related items.

Tintin in the Land of the Soviets is the first of The Adventures of Tintin, a series of classic comic-strip albums written and illustrated by Belgian writer and illustrator Hergé. The series features young reporter Tintin as its hero.Tintin in the Land of the Soviets was published for the first time in Le Petit Vingtième (the children's supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle) between 10 January 1929 and 11 May 1930, and appeared in album form in 1930.The story is a political satire, expressing Hergé's distrust of the Soviet Union and poking fun at its claim to have a thriving economy. According to Benoît Peeters' book (Le monde d'Hergé), the only source used by Hergé to create his story was the book entitled Mosco sans voiles (Moscow Unveiled) written by Joseph Douillet, a former Belgian consul in Soviet Russia. For such reasons, Hergé decided to withdraw the album from circulation in the 1930s. In 1973, a facsimile edition was launched, that immediately became a best-seller (100,000 copies sold in that year alone).

This diecast car is produced from the real “Mercedes Torpedo 1925”. This car is in Tintin “the Land of the Soviet”, paging 9. It is the only early Tintin adventure which Hergé did not redraw or colourizes in later years, and, as a result, looks and feels very different from the other books. In this diecast car. Tintin and Snowy are black and white. Oval tires show kept in that it is running with a very high speed. Tintin is wearing a scotch shirt and Snowy is sitting in the car. The position is exactly the same as in cartoon. This car is one of the first three cars that were produced. There is window box. It is collectible for those who love cartoon.
