I never heard of "Hunt the Kaiser's Cruisers", Momo, thanks for sharing those!
I've long had an idea to build a German African lake cruiser, a la the "Königin Luise" from "The African Queen", in 54mm, and cast and paint a crew. Others have produced British Nile river boats, or gunboats along those lines, and they look really cool when finished. These videos are pulling the idea to the front of my mind again.

I was very happy to find it again , it's really well done IMO .

We were on our way to relieve the Kennedy when this went down .
The Kennedy gave the Med to the TR about 10 days after this .

Needs Longer Barrels .
She was moored across the pier from us once ... they pushed her across the dock to Pier 11 for some reason .
I guess the IKE or the Kennedy wanted their parking space back .
