P-40 Kitty Hawk

The Curtiss P-40 E is the successor to the Hawk 81 A, better known as the Tomahawk. It first took flight on 22nd May 1941 under the designation of Hawk 87 A. An order for 540 was made by Great Britain, who called it the Kittyhawk 1A, and other Commonwealth countries. A second order was made for 1500 planes for the US Army Air Force that used it under the name of Curtiss P-40 E who then sold them back to Great Britain in virtue of the land-lease agreement.


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.
