featuring JDM plastic model cars, and more!

Welcome to jdm24scale.com

Hello everyone, jdm24scale is dedicated to my hobby; that of assembling 1/24 scale Japanese model cars. Since I was a young boy I used to buy 1/24 scale diecast cars and take them apart right after so that I could add small details to make them unique. As I grew older, my passion moved to the larger 1/18 scale where I started to completely modify these, making them as different as possible. Modifications that time included scratch-built body kits, new spray, interior modifications, different wheels and engine detailing. As time passed by, in real life I was getting more interested in Japanese cars and finally at the beginning of 2008 I decided to turn my model car attention to these cars coming from the East! With this I decided to do an even bigger change too: going from 1/18 scale diecast to 1/24 scale plastic model kits.

This website also features a Reviews section, where I post my own opinions and pictures about kits or accessories I buy for my builds. These are intended to help other modellers get to know exactly what a certain product contents are. Another section is dedicated to Tutorials, where I post detailed descriptions about the procedures I follow while building my kits.

While hoping you'll enjoy your visit at jdm24scale.com, please feel free to sign my guestbook with comments and/or suggestions on my work and about the site, thus helping me to improve both my modelling skills and the website itself.

Thanks for looking,

Another FD2 update! After more than 2 weeks of sanding, correcting, filling and re-sanding, I was able to apply the first layer of primer to the body! Very happy with what I saw as there are only some minor defects that needs further correction. Time to move on with this nightmare build!

New update on the FD2 project! The wheels and brakes were next to work on. First I finished the brakes with all the detailing required, then finished the wheels where I also added HD air valves, and finally attached the tire decals.

Another FD2 update. The interior and chassis are now officially completed and I've just added several new photos of these. Next job is to finish the rims and tires now before starting to work on the body.
