A friend of mine is drawing United States space hardware and he wants to match the fonts used on the Saturn V/Apollo spacecraft. Would anyone know what typefaces were used and the equivalent PC TrueType font? I presume that United States is written in the same font as that used by the US Air Force. Does anyone recognize the font used for "USA"?
