It was just as the year 1955 was drawing to a close that the Flygvapnet received its first Saab 32 Lansens. The single-engine, two-seater Lansen was designed by Svenska Aeroplan AB (Saab) and was the first Swedish plane to fly faster than sound. 456 of this versatile aircraft were produced, and were available in three main versions. The shape of its swept wings was put to the test by fitting them to a Saab Safir. A PS-431/A radar (designed in France to Swedish specifications) was equipped to 1 in every 4 aeroplanes as a money-saving measure.


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.
