      recently got hold of a Revell Convair 990 and I am going to build it

      I want to do it in the mixed Ports of Call/Ciskei International livery so I have to make my own decals. There I need the help of this community: is anyone able to identify the font used for the Ciskei titles?

      thanks!

      Hi Peter.
      It looks like a modified version of antique olive.

      All the best

      I did a vector based drawing of the font. Let me know if you would like the file.

      I cannot express how Impressed I am that Jennings and Ray not only knew the Font, but also the color. What an amazing group of folks we have here!!

      LOL... I've been setting type since the days of punching hot lead. If there's one thing I know, it's fonts.
