In the early ’70s , for a brief period, the Almark Publishing Company was apparently everywhere. There was a magazine, ‘Modelworld’, a series of high quality books on uniforms, and even a couple of sets of hard plastic WII figures.
Then the company vanished. Modelworld folded suddenly.
Does anyone know what happened to Almark, and whether anyone has the rights to the books?
What an interesting question. I hope someone can provide a better answer than I have been able to find.

This is all much less useful than you might think, as companies house do not have electronic records going back that far, and getting more detail would require access to their archives. I am quite surprised the date of dissolution is so late; as far as I can make out Almark published nothing after 1979, and as I was working in France at the time I evidently failed to notice their disappearance.
