That's a nice looking W900. I like the colors combination. As for the engine, that's white.

Well, it depends. The kit is a 1976-82, so if you make it a 1976 or 1977 I'd go white, otherwise Caterpiller Yellow.

Figured I could bump this up since it's good info and I have a question.

What is a good paint to use to simulate the Cummins Beige, preferably in Tamiya bottle paint?

Jordan, I'm not 100% certain, but in Tamiya paints I'd take a guess the XF57 Buff or XF59 Desert Yellow bottles are about the closest you might find. If you'd want to spray it, TS46 Light Sand looks like a close match to most Cummins I've been around. If you want to look, I found a paint chart here:

Tamiya Paint Charts

They are kind of hard to read, even after clicking on the image to enlarge it, but readable enough if you look close or have really good eyesight! :lol:

For Cummins Beige I use Tamiya Deck Tan XF-55. It's close enough for me.

Well I compared the color charts to a picture of a freshly painted Cummins and it does appear that XF67 Buff is the closest. Of course, there's always the excuse of colors being slightly different on the computer, but since both pics are on the computer, it should be fine! B)

Edit: Just noticed that the XF colors are flat, and I want a glossy look, so the best for that is X31 Titanium Gold.

Thanks

I've found reference to the Italeri Freightliner FLC and Ford LTL9000 having either a Cummins FTC400 or FTC475, can anyone confirm this? I know the kits have the same engine, a twin turbo inline.

It would most likely be the standard medium tan.

To contribute to the list, the FLC, Ford 9000, Western Star, and Superliner all have the same engines.

That's the one, most people like Tamiya Deck Tan since it's very close to the actual color.

I get a bit confused by Big Cam and Small Cam Cummins, but wouldn't the 475 Cummins also be a Big Cam?

Yes it would. The twin turbo 475 came out in in the early 80s the big cam 1 came out in the late 70s the small cam was phased out with intrduction of the big cam engines. The tt475 unfortunatly was plagued with problems like the 444 and wasn't produced very long. The 444 xt was an improved version which eventually evolved into the n 14.
