Farming in Miniature
Farming in Miniature is a fantastic new book about British-made toy tractors, implements and horse-drawn farm vehicles.  Click here for more details.

The 'Budgie Models' book
has 126 pages, hard covers, and over 180 models are illustrated in colour.  It covers all the earlier Morestone and Modern Products from 1946 as well as the Budgie ranges (1959-1985). Also included are the Noddy items and the Budgie and Esso Series miniatures.  It really is the definitive guide to these toys.

The booklet 'Benbros T.V.Series & Mighty Midgets' gives a history and detailed listing of these Matchbox size toys which were made in England in the 1950s and early 1960s.  It is A5 size, has 24 pages and is illustrated with black and white photos and a full colour cover.  See the reviews in Model Collector and Diecast Collector magazines in June 2002.
