Do you think that they could have altered this model in the 1920's to make it look like the Mauretania by adding cowl vents and painting it cruising white? or do you think it is a true hybrid with elements from both ships?
Interesting! This model sounds like a twin of the one aboard the QE2, started out as the Lusitania, but modified to represent the Mauretania after the loss of the Lucy. Cunard had three similar models (that I know of) that were purely the Mauretania, so I have to wonder, is there a third Lusitania or Lucy/Maury hybrid out there somewhere?
