That's.... a discussion for another time. 

Interesting note: James Urbaniak was the voice for the villainous MO-C droid, so it was like Rowan was being pursued by Rusty Venture the whole time 

Are you sure you posted that in the correct thread? :P

And here's my contribution to those still wishing for an X-wing ground wars game. 25 speeders and 6 walkers. Now I haven't really painted the walkers. They are originally a strange winter themed Hallmark Christmas ornament/collector piece. As such I really only needed to repaint/cover the patches of snow/white to make the model more neutral. I've also straightened the necks and the front left leg.

Awesome - now what are the odds on finding AT-ST's in the same scale...?

A YV-666 I call the 'Dune Rider'. It's based on the same colours as sand crawlers as just about everyone I meet (who haven't seen the YV-666 previously) keep calling the ship a sand crawler. Originally it was also supposed to have a bunch of Star Wars inspired graffiti on it but the transparent decal paper I use didn't agree with the dark background. Only one decal survived, as can be seen in the last picture. I do believe I will paint a Z-95 in the same colours as this ship, so I have a 'Nashtah pup' equivalent.

Did you actually paint the two "Mating" AT_ATs or was that done with a fine tip pen?

Other than Micro Machines (1/225ish), these 1/144 scale Bandai kits are probably as close as you can get unless there is someone 3D printing them. I grabbed a couple a while back, and the detail is quite nice.

I've purchased both of these over a year ago, the models are very nice. I still haven't gotten around to painting them...

I know you said you weren’t redoing all of the old links, but any chance of getting a repost of some of the X-Wings? (Looking most for your Macross inspired stuff).

Didn't I redo those links? I can't remember. Anyway here's a link to them.

Also, while I know it's not completely X-wing related, here's a link to some ARMDs I built last year.

@MacrossVF1, do you do this as a full-time career, or is this still a hobby for you? I look at the limited time that I have and have been wondering how you do that level of detail - its really a high level of craftsmanship! If you don't do this as a full time profession, I'm convinced you have a time machine (haha).

You know what time it is? Arquitens time!

This is the third Arquitens that I've built. It's similar to the first one in that it represents a later Arquitens, as it looks in Imperial Service. Of course I've improved and refined the design quite a bit. Also, the Armada Arquitens has helped me quite a lot. Despite the small size, having an official scale model at hand allows for a far more accurate scratch build.

As is always the case with a large model like this, the pictures are below my usual standard. No matter what I do I can't fit an epic sized ship inside my photo setup. Instead I have to improvise using other methods. After I had taken the photos I noticed that I had twisted the engine array upside down. Not a huge problem since I hadn't glued them into place at that time.
