In the year 2005 Matthew Sparks started publishing under the name of MicromodelsUSA.
He wanted to continue the work of Geoffrey Heighway.
Bringing to life the models that he planned to release but never quite got around to, and some new models he hadn’t thought of yet .
These models are of a high quality, with very much similarity to the Micromodels of Geoffrey Heighway.
They also released a range of re-issues of the original Micromodels.
Gladly they are clearly marked as produced by MicromodelsUSA, so you cannot confuse them with the originals.
The website is currently offline
