Yes, some amazing work there. !!THUMBSX2!!
Did you start by 3D scanning/imaging the original, or does the modelling have to be created from scratch in 3D Max?

If the 3D-Model can be created using simple geometric shapes, then rebuilding is much easier than 3D scanning. With 3D scanning, you usually have to invest a lot of time in cleaning and reworking the scanned 3D-mesh. This is only worthwhile with very complex structures.
I build each model in 3D Max with the help of reference pictures and simple geometric objects.
