Super Constellation TWA

Developed from the L-749, the L-1049 Super Constellation first appeared in 1950. The transformation undergone by the L-749 was the longest extension ever made to a propeller airliner. The insertion of fuselage sections increased the length by 5,59 m. Other important modi?cations were the complete reinforcement of the airframe and the ?tting of rectangular portholes, the increase of tank capacity and the installation of new engines. The first L-1049 was put in service on December 15th, 1951 by Eastern. TWA and Eastern Air Lines had the largest fleets of „Super Connie“ aircraft.


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.
