1:36 Drawings - Text and Logos

These are the fonts and logo images used in painted 1:36 drawings.

About applying the images to the drawings:
  • I use very large logo images in order to create smooth edges when the images are downsized.
  • To preserve colours and shading, I convert images to 24-bit Bitmap files before downsizing.
About the source material:
  • I trace most logos from photos.
  • I use exact font matches whenever possible.  They are listed here without images.
  • If I find a font that's close but not exact, I modify the font.
  • If I cannot find a close match, I either heavily modify a font or trace photos--or a combination of the two.
