air national guard fonts 1960s and 1970s
Posted by Newps on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 11:22 AM

I am working on making some custom decals to build some ND ANG aircraft. I have noticed that there are differences in the font the ND ANG (and other ANG units as well) used for the serial numbers on the tail vs. the standard USAF Amarillo font. Note in particular that the 2 and 7 are considerably different. Is anyone aware of what this modified Amarillo font is and is there a TTF of it anywhere?

The USAF Armadillo Font is on top, and the ANG font is on the bottom in this image

 

 

 

Cheers,

I ended up finding it after looking for fonts online. This useful tool helped me narrow in and find Air Corps JNL. It's not 100% perfect, but much closer on the numbers than the USAF Amarillo Font. 

Cheers,

Tony
