- TWA - Trans World Airlines

It was 1939, at the request of TWA, that the Constellation project was launched. This company wanted a 40-seater air-liner. The prototype took off on its maiden flight on the 9th January 1943 but, because of the war, the Constellation began its career under a military denomination - that of C-69 - and it equipped the AIR TRANSPORT COMMAND of the US Air Force. After the war, the two first civilian clients were TWA and Pan American. The latter company was the first to fly the Constellation on the New-York-Bermuda route. T.W.A., for its part, inaugurated on February 6, 1947 the first link between the United States and Europe.


Because it's important to us!

At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.

Recycled plastic

Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.

No bags and film

Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.

Oldies but Goldies

We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
