The Transall C-160 was a tactical medium-range transport aircraft developed in the 1960s by the German-French consortium Transporter Allianz, consisting of the companies Nord-Aviation (wings and engine nacelles), Weserflug (main fuselage, tailplane) and Hamburger Flugzeugbau/HFB (fuselage nose, rear fuselage and tailplane parts). It was and still is used by the air forces of Germany, France and Turkey. After more than 50 years, the German Air Force decommissioned all Transall aircraft. Not all aircraft will be scrapped, because like these „Retro Brummel“, other aircraft will also end up in museums belonging to the “Bundeswehr”, among others. The last specially painted C-160 Transall with the registration 50+40 of the Air Transport Squadron 63 in Hohn, flew its farewell tour „Last Call“ 2021 over Germany for half a year, completed its last flight on 20 October 2021 and landed at the former army airfield Roth/Nuremberg.
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.
