Auto Credit Based on jamesPLANESii's Kaitaki Interislander Ferry

My biggest project ever, built over 4 weeks, FINALY DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Kaitaki is one of the ferries which sails across the cook strait, the sea which separates the North and South Islands of New Zealand. It is the biggest ferry in New Zealand.
This ferry is about 50 hours of work, and it's big. Somehow I didn't get tired of building it.

Challenges I faced while building:
-You can only zoom out in the editor 150 metres. (This is 160 somthing) Also why the second picture doesn't show the rear bit
-Due to lag, nudging got very difficult. Pressing the button 70% of the time wouldn't do anything, so I had to hold the button down, which isn't very accurate
-School got in the way of building
-The logo on the funnels was infinately hard

Cool features:
-All propultion is from the props, which are also 5m below the water, which is weird that they work.
-9 cameras
-Awesome detail

Will I do anything like this again? Absolutely not.

Thankses:
-EternalDarkness: Gave me the inspiration to build this and gave me some suggestions along the way.

Enjoy!
