I've never built that kit, but to my eye it appears similar to most "riverboat" kits in looking out of scale and toylike. Such kits can make an attractive model, but shouldn't really be considered accurate.

I have built this model and it is a fantastic kit, the die cut plywood is of good quality and the timber which is mostly walnut is nicely machined with a good consistent grain. I also thought the metal fittings which were of good quality brass some of which is nicely machined and and cast components were excellent too. The only criticism I have is the paddlewheel is a tad on the large side but it could be cut down with a little bit of work if its not to your taste.
