Canadian Armed Forces typeface

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know which font should be used for the "Canadian Armed Forces" titles. If not the actual font, is there a good equivalent. I am doing normal skins for the CF-104. I've basically done the silver skins, but I need the font to do the titles in black for the green Starfighters.

aren't the silver and euro camo (overall dark green) skins both STOCK items?? Cause I sure have them!!

 

for the font, I see what could be interpreted as a couple of different ones...

 

AmrilloUSAF for the tail serial, and possibly RAF_PW_ATH or RCAF_60SQO_ATH on the nose.

All are available at simmerspaintshop.com

 

the "Canadian Armed Forces" look like AmrilloUSAF to me

The silver CF-104s are basically done. All I have to do is finish making serial numbers. Here is the RCAF silver.

Looks very nice! :good:

One thing, I think you use Bobrock´s temps.

The CAF ones did not use  the mainetenancing text on the nose, and the other stenceling is also a bit wrong on Bobrock´s temp.

I think i still have the temps for the USAF silver skin i did a while back. If you like to have the stencils shoot me a pm.

and one tip. Use less decals as much you can, looks much better.

I always use decals only for the numbers. ;-)

the only problem I see (and it may be a personal one! :biggrin: ) is that painted on national markings will not activate the 'nation name display' on the loadout drop down. There should (ok, my opinion - MUST) be a least 1 level=0 decal to activate the nation affilation.

 

however, I have a cheat for that; a decal that's very small, stuck on mesh that no one will notice (or see)

Something like this, usually used as the LAST one listed:

 

[Decal***]
MeshName=LeftAileron
DecalLevel=0
DecalFacing=BOTTOM
FilenameFormat=Insignia
Position=-0.0,0.00
Scale=0.0000001
DecalMaxLOD=1

 

and that works like a charm

Here is a preview of my next project, a Canadian Mirage IIIE. No ETA, though. Any suggestions for a model letter for a Canadian Mirage?

I had been thinking of Mirage IIIEC (C for Canada), or IIIEQ (Q for Quebec, indicating manufacture by Canadair). For a designation, I was thinking of CF-111, which was the original designation of the CF-104, and 111 indicates III.

 

Canadair CF-111 Mirage.

 

(May have to be amended for a General Dynamics CF-111 Aardvark, if I get around to doing that)
