Spaceship launch station

In my previous "black ice planet" enviro' posts (see speed modeling #2) I had small red lights on the distant horizon on a few of the paintings.  I began to think about what those lights were.  A remote facility like the Antarctic station in "The Thing"?  A lone transmitter antenna jutting up out of the frozen wasteland?  I decided to go with a vehicle launch station of some kind.  In keeping with the aesthetic of the icy environment I made the station a raw, polished metal material.  Perfect for reflecting cool highlights and the environment surrounding it!   I still have few details to put in but it's 80% there.
