      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

I have in the stash a CF tandem trailer kit, and a white-freightliner SD truck to pull it. I have found some good reference pic's on them, but i'm wondering what 'colors' would be a close match? ya, I know, green and red, but what are the actual green and red 'names'? thanks for any help you can provide. if it helps, i'm looking for the 60's/70's solid green cab paint scheme color.

I made one like that years ago,i used a dark green from testors,and the bright red too,i don't remember the numbers of them?,it looked like british racing green,i know it was a testors paint as that was all I had access to at that time.You could check over at Hanks Truck Pictures too,a lot of the guys there are very helpful with this type of request.
