Truck motor colors

Recommended Posts

i happen to have one of the italeri FLC kits with the cummins engine what would be the correct color for it?

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.

Italeri Flc and ltl 9000 have a big can 4 Cummins ROG petes and k100s have a twin turbo 475 Cummins AMT astros and titans all 8v71 dd

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.
