You can buy a 1:1250 scale model of it - photo here: http://www.collectableships.com/models/images/Albatros/194.jpg

Price: 64 Euros from Germany.

ss Tuscania (1922) was built for the Anchor line to replace a ship of the same name lost during WW1. Basic info as per Dicky D's link above. Colour scheme was black hull with red boot topping below white dividing line. Upperworks white, funnel black.
