All About Diecast Masters Diecast

Already well-established in the world of diecast model replicas, Diecast Masters is now shining particularly bright with their newest line of Cat models. Taking over for both Norscot and Tonkin replicas on the Cat scale model front, these replica professionals have inherited quite the legacy. Truthfully, however, the company's history goes back to its foundation in 1978 by Mr. Yu-Lee Fung. After being commissioned to create diecast scale models for John McNickle, the two men quickly hit things off and an empire was born.Starting in Hong Kong, the company eventually spread to an 80,000 square meter factory complex in Dongguan. Led by Mr. Fung until his death in 2014, the company is now continuing its success under the direction of Fung's sons, Barry and Raymond. With their new acquisition of the Caterpillar Inc. license, the company is taking things up a notch with their new High Line, Core Classics, and Commemorative Series.
