I started this in 2006, and have worked on it off and on, but have found a renewed passion for it as I’ve filmed a short scene that will take place here, (and have more time now as well). The design of the Hut is quite accurate to the original set. I created a 360 degree image (inside a cylinder) made up of stitched together footage from the two movies (ESB and RotJ) and modeled according to that. Some of it has been painstaking as I try to match camera angles and make sure the model matches the footage. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty darn close.
So now I’m trying to move it into the realm of photo realistic. I have a long way to go. Critiques are welcome.

And this is before updating recently for cycles and lots of other updates.
