„ROC AMADOUR“ was built in 1973 by the „Ateliers et Chantiers de la Manche“ in Dieppe and assembled by Avry Frères in Lorient
(LO 193680). At the time when it was designed and equipped for the most modern deep sea fishing techniques and equipped with pelagic shovels that made it possible to maneuver at great depths, it was classified in the „all back“ category of trawlers. The shipping company BOÐASTEINUR, whose home port is the Fuglafjord (Fuglafjørður), bought it in spring 1994 and named it after his company. From this moment on, „BOÐASTEINUR“ mainly fishes on the mid-Atlantic ridge and stays there for an average of 15 days.


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.
