The Secret of the Unicorn (1991)

While browsing in a market in Brussels, Tintin buys an old model ship with which he intends to give to his friend Captain Haddock as a gift. Two strangers, a model ship collector Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine and a mysterious figure is known only as Barnaby, unsuccessfully try to convince Tintin to sell the model to them. Returning home with the model, Snowy knocks it over and its mainmast broke. Repairing it, and showing the ship to Haddock, the latter is amazed that it is actually a model of The Unicorn, a 17th-century warship captained by his ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock.
