Large stocks were purchased by Broadway Approvals in 1956, and later passed on to the Watford Model Supply Co. in 1971.

The Tower of London was selected as one of the official souvenir sets at the Festival of Britain in 1951, so a special sticker was applied to the wrapper.

Kenilworth Press published this model in their “Limited Edition” series. This model is numbered LTD-8 and it is about twice the size of the original.

Magnus Models also published this model in 1985. It was 50% enlarged and in black and white.

Autocraft and Micromodels London both have printed the Tower of London.
