Heller 1:50 - Chebec
Heller 1:50 - Chebec

It should be noted that Le Chebec is not the original name of a boat but corresponds to a type of very slim, streamlined yacht, normally with three masts with Latin form sails and oars. The form and sails of Le Chebec vessel closely resemble those of a galley, its narrow bow and external stern platform visibly resemble the galley s ram and deck. The construction of Le Chebec vessel reproduced by Heller and that of the other three ships, was decided in 1750 by the Minister Antoine-Louis de Rouille, Count of Jouy. The four prototypes must have proven satisfactory as in 1764 the construction of four new Le Chebec ships was decided. The history of Le Chebec is not well known and is often associated with the many adventures of French corsairs or even the boarding of merchant ships. The Le Chebec ships have now disappeared after having nevertheless survived nearly half a century as fishing vessels. It is accepted that naval construction has never seen vessels as streamlined, designed for speed and attack.

Manufacturer Information

Heller manufacture their products in France and historically have had very close ties with Humbrol and Airfix. Up until last year a large percentage of Airfix kits were manufactured by Heller and the companies shared a number of tools. This means that you will find exactly the same kits boxed as Heller and Airfix. A good example of this is the large HMS Victory. Although this is well known in the UK as an Airfix kit it is actually Hellers reboxed. Although having some tough times financially Heller have produced some good new releases this year including the A380 Airbus and also the D-Day Air Assault set which contains the old Italeri Horser glider.
