Welcome to NICHOLAS MARTIN DIECAST, the leading site for Morestone, Budgie, Benbros, Kemlow Sentry Box, and Britains Lilliput Vehicles. Many thanks to all of you who have been in contact. It is always a pleasure. 

The Triple blister-pack Sets of Budgie Miniatures were issued in two Series over five years (1965-70) but are now rare items. Each Set was based on a theme such as Utility Vehicles or Construction Vehicles and both Series were numbered 95 to 99 with the second Series replacing the first. A new page describing these hard-to-find Sets is now online with images and model details.

 

Nicholas Martin Diecast aims to give you as much information and detail as possible about all the models and their boxes or packs. Almost every model has a separate page with photos and images, full descriptions and a list of variations. These are constatntly being updated as fresh details are discovered and new images become available. The latest updates can be found on the new 'RECENT UPDATES' page.

To improve the site the font and layout has been upgraded. The buttons at the top of each page now have drop down menus to improve navigation. With over 530 pages, there is much to see but the Index Menus for each range or group of models provide all the links. Scroll down for the full list.

 

Continue to enjoy NICHOLAS MARTIN DIECAST! Come back often! Hopefully you will always find something new to discover.
