STARTER KIT Delahaye Type 103 Pompiers

Included Cement · Brush · Main paints

The Société des automobiles DELAHAYE is one of the oldest French automobile trademarks, and was created in 1845 by Emile DELAHAYE. The company presented its first vehicle in 1894. The firm‘s vehicle production covered a wide variety of vehicles ranging from agricultural machines and firefighting equipment to private and racing cars. The success of the DELAHAYE automobiles was of course a result of the technical options selected and of their high quality but was also due to the fact that the technical manager, Charles WEFFEINBACH, was one of the first to rationalise the methods to be applied to mass production lines. This „Big ladder“ is in fact a DELAHAYE Type 103, 1937 model, and equipped with an all steel 26 m MAGIRUS ladder. Specially ordered by the Monacan Principality, this unique example was delivered in 1939 to the Monaco Fire Brigade. It remained in service until 1968/69, when it was bought by the Municipality of BONNEVILLE (Haute-Savoie - France). Today the Firefighters’ Museum in Haute-Savoie carefully preserves it.

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.
