LaLD 101: How To Make License Plates.

A couple of months ago I got my Maisto 1/18 GT-R. I promised to show how to make license plates for them so here it is. The Japan plates are for what ever scale you want. No matter if you want it 1/87 scale or if you want it 1/4 scale. There is a website I found where you can design your license plate with lots of options. You can choose what it says and where it’s from. The Japan plate maker you can find here. Now the other one I just found and I haven’t used it yet so I don’t know much about it. I just thought you might want to see and play around with it. Here it is. It’s German so you will have to use google translate for it. Now for the how to (Japan only site). You don’t have to follow any specific order, this is just how I do it.

First: Change the scale to what ever you need. I do this first so I don’t forget to do it later.


Next put what you want the Identification numbers to be.

Then you can change the hiragana.


Then the class number.


And last, the regional marking.


It will give you a sheet with 4 scale plates on it that you can print and cut out
