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

These are the kits I'm working on right now. They're the Aoshima Autozam AZ-1 and the Tamiya Lexus LFA. The Autozam is planned to have a sports livery to match with the Copen I built earlier together with various modifications. The Lexus is being built as a Nurburgring Edition version where I'm also utilizing the Hobby Design Detail-Up Set to help me achieve this. Click on any of the pictures above to be re-directed to each own page or follow the projects from The Builds section.

12 November 2019 - A new project on the bench!


Having the Lexus LFA now in an advanced stage, I decided to add another project on the bench! This time, I shall be working on another sports Kei car: the Autozam AZ-1 from Aoshima! Already several modifications were performed to it before heading to airbrushing the primer, so click on the picture to see the progress so far!

30 September 2019 - New LFA update!


New update on the LFA where this time I managed to finish the interior. All the parts were airbrushed and detailed accordingly and finally I could put together the interior of the Lexus. Click on the picture to view the last steps before the final assembly, and how the interior looks now.

29 August 2019 - Update on the LFA!


It was interior carbon time for the LFA! Several interior items are made of carbon fiber on the real LFA so this had to be replicated on my miniature version. So these were covered using a HD carbon decal and then airbrushed with 2K clear. Click on the picture to see the latest updates from the LFA project.

25 July 2019 - After a break, I'm back with updates on the LFA!


More updates on the LFA where I began cleaning all the remaining interior and engine bay pieces. Then, all of these were airbrushed in primer and then in the necessary colour. I've also began working on adding the necessary details, starting with the steering wheel. Click on the picture to be re-directed to the LFAs page.
