"exacting attention to detail". I've seen the movies many times, and despite the castle's architecture magically changing every movie, I honestly could not tell it was Hogwarts from the first and second time I watched the video. It's more like a really big castle that stole certain aspects of Hogwarts.
Quidditch pitch is pretty nice though.
Also, the download seriously needs to be cleaned up a little. There's no point in having a texture pack folder if there is only 1 file in it.
Everyone else: having the same idea as someone else in a freaking game =/= stealing. I was building my own Hogwarts as well, and I'm sure hundreds of other people were doing the same thing. Get over it.
