Is there a url for Heller?

Googles has not been entirely helpful, but at least I know Heller make
BIOS and micro-controllers.

But Airfix may rise again!: http://www.airfix.com/

This is odd, because the company was supposed to have croaked in July of
2006: http://business.guardian.co.uk/story/0,,1862203,00.html
(see, French...frog...croaked...no, not "Frog"; frog! No, not "Air
Lines", frog! no, not "Novo" either!) :-)

That is curious indeed.  Heller responded last night to my request.

Did they reconstitute the company after their insolvency?
Their kit list is sure nothing to get e***d about, and their catalog
is from 2006.

That is a good question.  The only thing I can come up with is that the
Aifix, Heller and Humbrol crew have merged.

The site does look pretty pathetic.

Well Airfix and Humbrol are supposed to be owned by Hornby now:

But nothing is mentioned about Heller in the deal.
However this site shows lots of Heller models will be arriving the
middle of this month:

So I don't know what is going on. :-\
