Does anyone know what this craft is? Is it real or fantasy? The model may be plastic or resin (photo found online, no details given).

The "Biber" (beaver) is the closest match to the toy profile that I could find. So it may be a sort of Kubrik rendering of the Biber, or it could be a complete fantasy. On the other hand, I make no claims to be a naval expert, so it could be a WWI boat of some type.

Kind regards, Chris

Chris, the photo came from a German modeling site. I still haven't seen anything like it. Thanks for the link (I am not a naval expert either).
