Bburago continues to crank out decent mid-level diecasts, detailed enough to look good while simple enough to be inexpensive. Their MP4-12C was no exception, with a clever parts breakdown and overall decent fit.

To turn it into Brian's car, I started with a complete disassembly and stripping. Once cleaned off, I repainted it using House of Kolor Oriental Blue over silver. The results weren't exactly what I had in mind, but it served as a good learning experience for future uses of HoK paints. A few details like the marker lights were then painted with a toothpick.

Once painted, the car was reassembled, polished and given a set of screen-accurate license plates and front and rear badges (the latter of which were from the same set that I used on the AutoTrader Viper).
