Our Philosophy

Diecast Masters prides itself on building Real Replicas™ of Cat® machines. In fact, it’s part of our corporate identity. Here’s just some of what we mean when we say “Real Replicas”:

  • True machine geometry; all scale model tooling starts with 3D files of the real machines, provided directly by Caterpillar Inc.
  • Authentic Cat Machine Yellow paint color
  • Authentic Cat trade dress and machine nomenclature, tampo printed using original art files provided by Caterpillar
  • Oscillation, articulation and other real machine movements replicated as closely as possible in a scale model
  • Accurately scaled operator figure in each model’s cabin provides an instant “human scale” reference to the real machine’s size

Yet even with our unerring focus on quality and authenticity, we recognize that our mission must also be to serve the broad market of collectors with scale models they can afford, build a collection around, and truly enjoy owning.
