Lester Harrison produced “Micromodel Kits” in 1994. Every bit of information he could find about Micromodels was put together in this book. The 5th edition in 1998 had the size of A4 and contained 40 pages. It has no pictures, only on the front page, but it is jam-packed with information. Much of the information found on the worldofmicromodels.nl website is based on what is found in this publication. It must have taken many years to get all this information together. Especially when you take in mind it was done before the internet era.


 

Frank C. Odds from the UK got a nice birthday present from his son and his daughter-in-law: a unique Micromodel of the house he lives in. The whole thing is very authentic looking: It is called ARC O The Old Mill and has the instructions printed inside the wrapper, just like the original Micromodels. So if you have no idea what present to ask for your next birthday …


 

Zeist Bouwplaten has published a model of the Expo ’58 in Brussels in the scale of 1 : 2500 . The base is A4 format, and the model is sold as a booklet. Alas the world famous landmark The Atomium  and it’s surroundings, which were part of the Expo ’58, are not included in the model.


The Modelcraft card J4 Sentinel Steam Waggon was also published in the magazine Model Auto Review. This edition is 8% enlarged and the colors are slightly altered.


The  Dutch graphic designer Reinout P. Versteeg has designed a model of a part of New York City.
He produced the model in 2003, and printed it on a 42 x 60 cm poster. The scale is 1 : 10.000 what makes it the model with the smallest scale on this website. As you can see below the design is quite colourful, and the buildings themself also have bright colours. This is not always in line with the colours of the actual buildings, but it looks appealing.
The buildings are not exact replicas of the actual buildings, but they give a good impresssion of New York City.
Part number 11 should be the St. Patricks Cathedral, but instead there is a skyscraper. We wonder how the St. Patricks Cathedral would have looked like in the scale 1 : 10.000 !

Reinout Versteeg also published five small articles in the Dutch Magazine NRC Handelsblad in june 2010.
