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 die-cast 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 this 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, that of going from 1:18 scale die-cast 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,

NOTICE

As one may notice, several pictures on my website are not being displayed. Instead, a nasty message from PhotoBucket is showing. This is due to their recent unannounced changes regarding third party hosting. I am currently transferring all my images to another image host, so please bear with me until all changes have been done.
