Here are some photos of a scratch-built Kriegsfischkutter (KFK) in 1:72 scale. The KFKs were North Sea fishing boats commandeered by the Kriegsmarine and converted to armed convoy escorts, ASW craft, harbor protection and other duties. This particular vessel carries a 3.7cm AA gun forward, and a 2.0cm FlakVierling aft, plus six depth charges and minesweeping paravanes.
