Alien Invasion
These 2 models were originally made for the "Scene from a Movie" competition held by "Game-Artist.net". We couldn't finish in time and didn't submit as my team member "Myles Lambert" who's a freelancer suddenly got into a professional task of bigger priority. I managed to churn the "Empire State Building" and the "UFO". And here are some screenshots of those models. The floor counts of the building is maintained like the original one in New York, ie 102 floors. The original idea was to replicate a scene from the movie "Independence Day" when the Alien Mothership destroys the "Empire State Building" in New York. Despite of all this, however the building lacks a proper foundation and a detailed Ground Floor. This is because the ground floor wasn't a priority in the target screenshots.

UFO Triangle/Face Count - 4,356 triangles.
