Budgie Miniatures

Triple blister-pack Sets

Between 1965 and 1970 Budgie issued two Series of Triple blister-pack Sets containing Miniature models. Both Series were numbered 95-99 although in the first Series No.95 (Road Haulage Set) was planned but never issued.

The packs were a simple design with the three models of each Set enclosed in a combined vacuum-sealed blister and held within a folded card. 'Die-cast models by Budgie' was printed on the front with the title of the Set, and the model names and numbers were printed beneath each blister. On the back details of other Sets in the Series were included.

 

Triple Sets were particularly aimed at sales in North America and some model names were altered, for example No.15 Austin Countryman became No.15 Austin Station Wagon.

 

All the Sets are now scarce, especially the first Series, and are rarely found in mint condition.
