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.

A new review has just been posted and this gives a closer look at the Hobby Design HD03-0333 Yokohama Advan Ad08 18" tires. These are the same tires I've used on my Tamiya Honda NSX NA1.

New update on the FD2 project! The interior was detailed with Top Studio braided lines and resin connectors. The wiring was also completed using different thickness of wire together with several scratch-built items.

Another FD2 update. All the interior and chassis parts were painted and detailed so everything's ready for final assembly. After installing several parts to the interior, I began planning the wiring and plumbing according to the real Spoon Sports FD2.
