Don't know what to say... uh.. surprised! Thanks a lot!
There were many good ideas this round and I had no hope to be among the
winners this time :)

Well, I think you deserved it well... Both the texturing and the 
modeling are awesome.

I'm glad I ranked 19 from 91 :)

Congratulations,

Fernando

WOW!!! I made the top 10!!!

Thanks everyone.  And congrats to the winners!

There were some very interesting interpretations on the theme, more variety
than I had expected. Overall, a good round.

I had to severely curtail my comments this round due to time constraints
imposed by real life, and I doubt I'll get an entry in for Epic
Proportions, but still lurking...

You deserved it!  Your entry is my favorite out of the bunch.  The
phenomenal light and texturing make this scene really come to life.  Nice
job.

thanks, Skip :) Experiments with light and textures took the most time.

Since it was designed as a whole model (and not just for a single view), I
will post the development and some more details of "rocket":

from the first shape to the final details:

First texture experiments with a specular map for a brushed look:
