Cool... It looks nice, but the lighting in this scene hides detail. Any chance of a series of renders with some light thrown on it to show off all the work?

Now if you want to see a modeling challenge (crazy even), take a look at the one being done only with booleans on the Bryce forum. (Dunno if it'll ever be finished, but it's fairly impressive too.)
