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, 




Current Project

This is the kit I'm working on right now. It's the Aoshima Daihatsu Copen which I'm building to cool off from the ZoomOn Civic FD2. Click on any of the pictures above to be re-directed to the Copen's own page or follow the project from the The Builds section.

28 June 2018 - New Copen update!

The little Copen received some pins to help me install the side mirrors and rear spoiler easier once the body is airbrushed. Also, I have added a new front spoiler after realizing that the side-skirts sit lower than the front bumper!

22 June 2018 - New Review

I have just added a new review to the collection! This time I'm having a closer look at the 16inch Volk Racing TE37 wheels from Aoshima. Click on the picture to see this new update.

18 June 2018 - Copen update

Another Copen update! Time to start preparing the body for primer. But before, I did a couple modifications which are: narrowing the inner arches, opening the molded meshes of both bumpers and modifying the side-skirts too. 

11 June 2018 - First Copen update

First update on the Copen project! I have chosen the wheel set-up I shall be using: Aoshima 16" TE37 rims together with ZoomOn stretch tires. Was a bit of a challenge to fit them inside the narrow arches, but with some work they're in! Check this out...
