STARTER KIT SA 342 Gazelle

Included Cement · Brush · Main paints

Jointly developed by France and the United Kingdom in the 1960s, the Gazelle light multi-purpose helicopter made its maiden flight in 1967. It was first mass-produced at the start of the 1970s by Aérospatiale (France) in collaboration with Westland Helicopters (United Kingdom) and was available in two main versions, the SA 341 and the SA 342. Most of its production was intended for military use. The SA 341 F, produced for the French Army, was the first model to be equipped with HOT wire-guided missiles. The last military versions manufactured were the Astazou XIV turboshaft engine-driven SA 342 L1 and the SA 342 M, produced on behalf of French Army Light Aviation.


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.
