DC6 Super Cloudmaster AF

Studies of the DC 6 were started during World War Two, to meet the US Air Force’s demands for long-range military cargo planes. It was converted for civilian transport immediately after the War and equiped with a pressurised cabin and the means to carry 52 to 68 passengers. UNITED AIRLINES was the first company to receive the DC 6, in April 1947. Two hundred and eighty six DC 6B’s were built until production stopped in 1958. The Heller variant shown here is a DC-6B „What if“ version, as it might have looked at Air France.


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.
