The first F-16 joined the Belgian Air Force (BAF) fleet in 1979 to replace the F-104 Starfighter. At that time the BAF decided to create an F-16 Demo Team. This gave them the opportunity to show its jets and the skills of Belgian military pilots. This tradition continues to this day. In 2018, Sr Cpt Darte, aka ‚Vador‘, became the 19th F-16 pilot to continue this tradition for three consecutive years, performing spectacular and technical manoeuvres, such as very tight glide loops and the 8-sided barrel roll, which require extreme precision and timing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
