There is a diecast 1/25th scale Cat 3516B Genset made by Northcot. It can be detailed up quite nicely

Revel Germany also made a V10 genset as a load for their 6 axle flatdeck

It is very basic and need a lot of work to detail it out. I think that this may have been patterned off a Sultzer V12 motor but it was condensed to fit the box.

At the LHS recently I found a Walthers HO scale locomotive engine kit that I think will make a 1/25 scale towable genset. It will take a lot of additional detailing.
