Long time ago, a nice contemporary representation of the ship in colour, attributed to F. J. Emeric, could be found on the net. Still there, but the resolution is lousy:

A slightly better picture of the bow section only can be found in a second catalogue (p.4):

If someone has better pictures - thanks for sharing. 🙂
