Can you be more specific? I do not see a 6.7 on the list . Who makes the resin engine you are referring to?

I don't know who does a Cummins 6.7 engine, all engines I have listed are for large class 8 trucks, so I don't know what engine he refers to either.

 

I didn't list European manufacturers as they are'nt that common in USA, Volvos are available in the US but they are US made and are not the same as in Europe.

 

The old Ertl Volvo is in fact a N10 and has a 10 litre Volvo TD100 Volvo engine, it's very similar to the larger 12 litre Volvo TD120 wich would have been in a N12.
Revell AG did F12's and AMT/Matchbox did a kit labeled F10/F12 and I believe they both have a Volvo TD120.

Heller has a Scania LB 141 with a Scania DS14 V8.

 

Listing Italeri kits is a bit challenging as they are not completely correct all the time and lately they don't even include an engine anymore in some kits, the last Italeri kit I bought was the Volvo VN780 and it has no engine.
Italeri did Volvo F12's and F16's and all had the same chassis and TD120 wich is wrong for the F16 that should have had a newer Volvo D16 engine, I have never had the newer FH12 and FH16 and models after that so I don't know what engine they have...if any, but they should have a D12 for the FH 12 and D16 for the FH16.

Italeri did Scania 142, and 143 models with the same Scania DS14 V8 engine., the later 143 should have had a DSC14 with Intercooler but didn't, they have also made the later 144 and R series but I have never had any of them so I don't know what engine they have...if they have any, but Scania has a new 16 litre angine called DC16 wich looks completely different to the old DSC14.
I don't have many Italeri kits and has never had except for some kits of the two Swedish makes Volvo and Scania, one Mercedes...and a couple American trucks, so I don't know what kit has what engine...and if it's correct or not as I can't check the kits myself.

The AMT california hauler & Pete 352 have 8V71 detroits. I have a few that I wouldnt mind getting rid of. The AMT fords have 3208 Cats, and there was a 12V Detroit in the Tyrone Malone kit that P&P resins sells. The International kits have V8 diesels also, but I doubt thats what your looking for.Thats all I know of V diesels.Hope that helps

This is from another thread, and we have to give Aaronw credit:

 

AMT American LaFrance Pumper/Ladder/Aerochief - Detroit Diesel 8V71T
AMT Autocar - Cummins NTC250
AMT Bandag Bandit - Detroit Diesel 12V71T
AMT Diamond Reo - Cummins NTD350
AMT Ford C series - Ford SD (401, 477 or 534)
AMT Ford Louisville - Caterpiller 3208 (or the 1160, very similar motors, not positive which)
AMT Freightliner SD/DD - Cummins NTC250
AMT GMC General / Chevrolet Bison - Detroit Diesel 8V92
AMT GMC Astro / Chevrolet Titan - Detroit Diesel 8V71 (old kits optional turbine)
AMT International F-4270 Transtar - Cummins V-903
AMT International Payhauler - Detroit Diesel 16V71
AMT International Paystar - IH V-800
AMT International F2476 - IH V-800
AMT International F2575 - IH V-800
AMT International 4300 - IH V-800
AMT Kenworth Aerodyne - Detroit Diesel 8V92T
AMT KenworthT-600 - Cummins NTA370
AMT Mack Cruiseliner - Mack ENDT676
AMT Mack DM-800 - Mack ENDT865
AMT Mack RS-685 - Mack ENDT675
AMT Volvo N-10 - Volvo F-10
AMT Volvo F-12 Globetrotter - Volvo F-12
AMT White Roadboss - Cummins NTD350
AMT White Western Star - Cummins NTD350
Italeri / Revell of Germany Ford Aeromax 120 - Cummins N14
Italeri Peterbilt 377 - Detroit Diesel Series 60
Monogram Peterbilt 359 - Caterpiller 3406

 

 

The N14 above is not an accurate representation, but better resin ones are available. Overall, not many choices for a factory equipped Pete 378, and a V8 wasn't available in a 378, but as a custom truck, anything goes. 

 

Hope this helps, and I bet others can add to the above list.

Your best starting point for a Cummins ISX is probably the Auslowe Cummins Signature 600: http://www.auslowe.c...emart&Itemid=27

Thanks jim and big thanks force. This list is just what i needed. I had no idea there was so many different engines in these kits and different resin pieces. This will really help move my skill along!

What's the difference between a Cummins Formula 350 / 400 and an NTC 350 / 400? Are they completely different engines or versions of the same engine?

As far as I know the Cummins Formula is a version of the NTC.

I didn't find one on the list (didn't think I would) but might there happen to be a source for a Cummins V8-185, or something that could be modified to stand in for one?

I'd like to build a Lindberg Dodge as an L-700 with diesel power, and I'm pretty sure there's no Perkins 354 (the other available diesel) in scale. I'd go so far as to scratchbuild one if I absolutely had to, but I can't find any physical measurements for either engine, so if I could start with something in the ballpark I'd be happy.

I think it would be neat to see a Dodge L700 with a Perkins or an early Ford C with an inline Dagenham or Dorset diesel.
 
I have found a pdf of a Perkins shop manual that gives dimensional data and has a lot of diagrams / photographs.
