Leopard 1A4

The Leopard 1 is a German main battle tank. It was the first tank developed in Germany after the Second World War. It was used in a total of 13 countries on five different continents. Due to constant increases in combat value, it can still be found in the armies of many countries in the 21st century. From 1964 to 1984, 4,700 Leopard 1 main battle tanks were built, in all variants. Krauss-Maffei Wegmann still offers the user states of the Leopard 1 a wide range of retrofit options. The Leopard 1A4 is a converted Leopard 1A1 to A4 status. The new designation was 1A1A4. The delivery of this 6th construction lot started in August 1974 and ended in March 1976 with a number of 250 vehicles. In 1989, 235 tanks of the 6th batch were taken out of the inventory and re-equipped to A3.


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.
