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,

08 October 2018 - FD2 is ready for assembly

After a whole week drying, the FD2 body was sanded down to remove all the orange peel, polished using the procedure listed in my "Polishing Tutorial" and finally masked for the black window trims. Now, it's all ready to start the final assembly!

27 September 2018 - New Spoon FD2 update!

Another update on the Spoon Sports FD2 project! This time, the middle section of the hood was airbrushed metallic blue, then all decals attached and finally sealed with 2K clear. A lot of items were also covered with carbon decals and these were then covered with 2K clear too. 

24 September 2018 - New Review added!

A new Review has been added to the collection. This time I'm taking a closer look at the Hobby Design HD03-0322 which upgrades your Tamiya Mitsubishi Evolution 6 into a Tommi Makinen Edition 6.5. Click on the picture to see this new update.

17 August 2018 - Another 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.
