The basic model for thermal spin crossover (SCO) is discussed in its microscopic and thermodynamic formulation. Compared to the basic model, its more elaborated forms formulated in course of almost 50 years are briefly reviewed with emphasis on their additional features. A separate section is devoted to the newer developments in the field of modelling of the SCO nanoparticles. The presentation of models is led in a comparative way to provide an accessible outline of the foundations of modern theoretical research on SCO and a simple applicability in quantitative interpretation of experiments.
