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

This is the kit I'm working on right now. It's the Tamiya Lexus LFA. Since I'm planning on building it as a Nurburgring Edition version, I'm also utilizing the HD Detail-Up Set together with their Photo-Etch parts set. Click on any of the pictures above to be re-directed to its own page or follow the project from The Builds section.

29 August 2019 - New 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 new 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.

12 April 2019 - Another update on the LFA!


New update on the Lexus where this time I have finished the engine and drivetrain configuration where these were fully assembled and pictured. The interior tub and chassis were also finished, so click on the picture to see these new updates.

20 February 2019 - New Review added!


New Review added. This time I'm taking a closer look at the Hobby Design photo-etch set I'm using while building the Tamiya LFA. Click on the picture to see what this set actually contains.
