E-2C Hawkeye

Designed by Grumman as from 1957 to carry out surveillance missions from aircraft carriers in an entirely autonomous way, the E-2 Hawkeye has up to now never ceased to develop. Certainly today's most complex aircraft ever to be loaded, its large dimensions however don't prevent it from going down into the hangars of the aircraft carrier, since the wings fold back laterally on each side of the fuselage. The operational core is in fact the radar, combined with a very high performance computer. The French Navy ordered three units of the most recent model in April 1995. They took delivery of the first one on the 18th December 1998 at the Lann-Bihoué airbase. These aircraft are part of the 4F Flotilla and are aboard the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.

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.
