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.

Hunter Green from Rustolium might work too, it looks close to my eye.
