Hi Everyone in the BFC Universe,

 

I built my first Moebius Viper Mk-II almost a year and a half ago. Now that I have become the Flying Tiger's Squadron Leader I'm building a couple more Mk-II's to resemble the awesome Group Emblem created by none other than Dragon Lady, Actual of the Battlestar Raven.

Flying Tigers Squadron

I am using the shark mouth and flying tiger decals from Revell's 1/48 scale P-40B Tiger Shark model kit. I plan on using Testors clear decal paper to make my own call sign, tail number and the Battlestar's name "Raven" for my new Viper's

Does anyone know the correct Font used to create the decals I need to make? Here are a couple photos of my first Mk-II showing the decals I need to duplicate: Raven in place of Galactica

 

 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. To see more in process photos of Kara's New Viper check out my page at this link: http://battlestarfanclub.com/profile/RogerWBarstow

 

Thanks,

LT JG Reamer "Flying Tiger's" Squadron Leader and first "Top Gun" on the Air Wing

Actually,I Was Thinking About The Pilot Name,Call sign,And Ship Name on The Viper. You Can Get Sharkmouth Decals From Anywhere, Wether It Be A P-40 ,An A-10, Or Any Aircraft That Had That; And,I Think 1/48th scale decals Would Fit The Mk.2 About Right; You Would ,Of course Have To Do Some comparing,Though.if You Find The Right looking Ones,You probably Would Have to Modify Them,Somewhat.

Thanks Leonidas,

I contacted Jeffrey at JT Graphics and asked him for all the decals I needed. He was going to see if there were any copy rights for the Shark Mouth and Flying Tiger and he was going to quote me a price.

Lets face it the P-40 markings from WWII are about 70 years old and I don't think they have a copy right. Jeff never got back to me so I'm going with plan B. I bought two Revell P-40B's on E-bay and I paid less for two complete model kits than some decal sets by themselves on E-bay.

I just need to know the correct Font so I can try making my own call signs. If I'm not able to find the correct Font, I'll use the closest one I can find and I'm sure it will look good enough.

 You Can Always Try JT Graphics; They Mostly Do Decals For Trek Models,But They Can Do CUSTOM MARKINGS;I Actually asked Them Myself Would They Be Doing Markings For Moebius' BSG Line,They Said 'They Could' So, It would definitely Be Worth Exploring. I Intend On asking Them To Do Some Markings For my SPARTAN SQUADRON Mk.7.
