This was an old model.. really old. it started as an idea back in college, and then i created the actual model while taking part in an online CG challenge at cgsociety.org ... was an amazing learning experience for me back then..
never did a fully textured render of the final model.. so here it is now.
heres the still render that i entered in the contest
