Ha! I love it, it's like a photonegative of N'dru or something... I really like the colored (or coloured, if you prefer) highlights you add to your canopies; I wish my brushwork was that steady! The highlighting on the wings, engines and "tail" are fantastic too, really adding some texture to the model. 

 

I wish the engine glow was just a little brighter/more vibrant, but this just might be my favorite Z-95 repaint yet! Fine work, sir.

Some X-wing models, among them the Z-95, has the peculiar problem that the exhaust is both too narrow and too deep which means that any colour I put into it can barely be seen due to dark shadow the hole creates. It's very hard to get around it.

A third hot rod Zed. The fourth and final one aren't quite finished however so it will be a few days before I can show it.

I think somebody must design a race scenario/campaign after this...

 

Yeah that would be awesome! :D

I don't really have any excuse except pure laziness and perhaps a bit too much to do. I suppose I have to do better. At the very least I should post any scratchbuilds on Battle Builders.

A lot of people like you Bro. BB's was for guys like us. Even Crabs shows up, and Rob Jedi... so it is all fun and kinda cool.

Here's the requested close-ups of the astromechs. And yes, you get a sneak peek of the final Y-wing here. I personally don't think these are anything special, not compared to a previous astromech I painted on another Y-wing of which I have included a picture below.

Thanks for the close ups, always interested in how people paint their astromechs, and your are all nicely done, one in the bottom pic especially.

 

Looks like all R6s, love that they're all white too, for that bit of contrast that makes them stand out

I actually painted them to look like R5 units, but yeah, the shape is probably closer to R6 units. Now, I will say this about painting astromechs. Many wargamers complain about painting eyes but that is dead simple compared to painting astro-units on this scale!

 

Anyway, here is the last beast/animal themed Y-wing. The last picture shows the source creature. I have no idea what species of snake that is, but it's very colourful.
