Nostalgic Miniatures

Brand

Handbuilts in 1:43 and smaller scales.  Created by Bob Brennan who also ran a mail order business in Westborough, Massachusetts called MTI (Miniature Toys Inc.)   Active in the 1970-80s.

The models were all handbuilt from pewter or white metal and most were sold in both painted and unpainted pewter versions. All the Brooklin Coke models were assembled there because they had the Coca-Cola license.  Minimarque Coke trucks, 36 Ford cars, and 58 Chevys were also built there; the Pioneer Models Avanti were all cast and built as well, not in England as the base plates say. Minimarque later sold the Avanti under the Minimarque name. (Bob Pendleton, https://www.diecast.org/diecast98/html/asp/forums/forum43/viewMessage.asp?id=185278&start=185278)
