Description Modelcraft Ltd did not issue a catalogue dedicated to card models. They did, however, issue “The Complete list of Modelcraft Plans and Plan Books”. This developed into “The Modelcraft Magazine and List” and then, “The Modelcraft Annual” (with supplements). These booklets have a limited interest to collectors of micromodels as they only contain the odd mention of new or re-printed card models (both Modelcraft Ltd and Micromodels Ltd versions).
The genesis of some of the early Modelcraft Ltd micromodels can be seen in the plans that were available during the 1940s.
