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.

New update on the Spoon FD2. More parts were airbrushed and detailed and I'm about to start assembling the chassis and interior. Some items received custom stickers to make them more realistic too.

New update on the FD2 project! I've started airbrushing all the chassis and interior in their respective colour. Some parts that have more than one colour were masked and re-airbrushed. More parts will be needing this procedure too, so keep following the FD2s page for more updates.

New Tutorial added to the site. This time I'm giving a closer look at how I made my own custom exhaust tips of the Honda NSX, carefully explaining each step so that other modellers could make their own too!
