What are some interesting, offbeat, or even obnoxious paint schemes that folks have repainted or planned to repain their models using?

At some point I'd like to repaint at least 1 A-Wing into something resembling a restored 1950's convertible; the scheme being pink/cherry red/aqua with white and chrome highlights.

I've also got some neat iridescent paints that I'm always looking for an excuse to use. When the tie phantom is finally released, I'll probably do something like a partially cloaked/uncloaking scheme.

I plan on doing a WW2 repaint with the Shark Nose art... but I don't think its going to work on an X-Wing. I may try it on the wings of a Tie! But, its going to wait until I get good enough. Has anyone done this previously?

Have not tried the idea but, I think it would look pretty cool on the HWK.

I've been discussing obnoxious and distracting schemes with a friend of mine...

An entire squadron of corporate-sponsored, NASCAR x-wings. Luke Skywalker flying the Tide (w Bleech), Biggs in the Shell, Wedge piloting GoDaddy.

It would probably be hard as hell to paint, but a Space Balls ship in plaid would be great. I'm pretty sure I saw someone working on a 1/270 Winnebago here...
