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,

17 August 2018 - New FD2 update


More progress on the FD2 where finally the body started looking like a real Spoon Sports vehicle, with it's famous livery colours! Both colours are from Zero Paints and these were sealed off with a quick layer of 2K clear before starting the decal work. All the parts that need carbon fiber were also airbrushed in black in preparation for the decal work.

31 July 2018 - the FD2 is back on the bench!


After working for several weeks on the Copen, motivation is back on for the FD2! So it's back on the bench, where I have modified the body accordingly to fit the windows, corrected all resin defects for remaining parts and now everything's in primer. Check it out!

20 July 2018 - Another Copen update


Another update on the Copen project! This time I have replaced the original seats and steering wheel with more sportier ones I had inside the parts box and finally applied primer to every part! Check this out...

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!
