Well, today I finished Roger "Race" Bannon - special agent, bodyguard, and pilot. Race works for Intelligence One and is charged with protecting both Dr. Benton Quest and son Jonny, as well as adopted their son Hadji. Race was definitely the muscle of the group, and easily the figure I wanted to do first.
Race really didn't wear a lot of different outfits throughout the series; a winter one, a karate one, and swim trunks, off the top of my head. So it was pretty easy to decide that the classic red shirt, gray pants outfit was going to be what I wanted, though I do think a winter version of Race would be pretty neat. I also really wanted a figure holding an automatic rifle, something similar to the very first picture above, but just had no luck at all. It was when I found Hasslefree's post-apocalypse Barney figure that I finally felt I had something that represented what Race was all about - action first!
As usual, I started with painting the skin first, then went to Race's distinct white hair.
As with all my Chicago Way figures, going forward I have decided on clear bases for all my pulp figures. The Hasslefree figures are super easy to cut at their feet to get them onto the bases. Pins were drilled into his feet that then went into the base, that way no glue is required. No need to worry about the 'frosting' that happens when super glue touches the clear base.
Super pleased with how Race turned out and looking forward to completing more Quest figures, including the plethora of bad guys. The main focus will be continuing on the Ghostbusters project, but I feel that having Jonny Quest as a side project will really help if I get stuck, need a break or creatively get off the track with the boys in gray :)
As always, thanks for looking!
