Hinchliffe Models Ltd was founded in 1967 by Frank Hinchliffe  and sold to Skytrex in 1984. They produced mainly historical miniatures but they did have a few fantasy and science-fiction ranges and they were licensed to produce the Heritage, Der Kriegspieler and Bugle & Guidon lines in the UK (just as Heritage were able to cast and re-brand Hinchliffe models in the USA). The historical "Hinchliffe Models" lines have passed through several hands: Draper Models (1990s), Ellerburn Armies (1990s - 2000s) and Hinds Figures, Ltd. (March 2008 onwards). .
