Trimaster was a Japanese scale model manufacturer based at Fujieda City, active from 1987 to 1991.

The company focused exclusively on the Luftwaffe aircraft in 1:48 scale, mostly rare variants and prototypes. Trimaster's kits were among the most detailed and complex at the time, including white metal castings, metal tubes, wires, vinyl tires and photo etched parts. Their prices were also extremely high for the time (about 55 USD) and the company went out of business as a result.

Hong Kong based Dragon acquired Trimaster's molds and re-released the kits in a simpler and more affordable format, replacing most metal parts with plastic. Lettering of the Dragon's "Master Series" resembles the original Trimaster's logo font.

In March 2020, Dragon announced its Trimaster Collection.[1] This series, reissued in original box design, commemorates Trimaster's importance and its past contributions.
