Very cool model, I don't see anything wrong with it. While I don't model waterfront scenes, I appreciate them. There were many small ferries, especialy in the southern US which could only haul one or maybe two cars across rivers. I had plans to build an operating one in O scale (On30) using a Tamiya tracked powered chassis which would be under water (dyed with brown ick)with the ferry on top and run in a slot (like a slot car) from one side of a river to the other. The problem was, and still is, the water. Too much needed, too heavy, too nasty (critters and fungus), and to represent a wide enough river it would take 5 to 6 feet or more. The best laid plans of model railroaders and mice...

Woodie-oh yes, the ferry would be r/c...
