Russell "Russ" Simpson (died 28 October 2009) was a model maker employed in 1978 by Magicam, Inc. and has contributed to the production of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Partaking in the construction of the various studio models, such as the work bee, the company was tasked to build, his most signature contribution was the build of the new Drydock model, after the Star Trek: Phase II version was discarded.

A train enthusiast, he started his own business around 1993, "Simpson Products Company", that was located in Placerville, California, designing and manufacturing scaled train miniatures. [2] Russ Simpson ran his company until his death.
