Geoff Sear was an architect from Durban, South Africa, who manufactured handbuilt model cars in his spare time from the mid-1980s until his death in 2011. His first models were copies of Mikansue handbuilt models from England held in the style of early Dinky Toys. Afterwards he started producing better detailed 1/43rd scale resin models in his Sear Models range. All in all, more than 15 rare British sports cars from the 1950s and 1960s, which had never been modelled before in 1/43rd scale, were added to this range. Furthermore, Geoff Sear released two models of cars designed and built in South Africa, the GSM Dart and the Protea Triumph. The models were only made to order, so they could be personalized if desired (i.e. correct number plates or special colours for body and interior).
