By MikeCI saw a thread on LSP recently, in which the OP described the difficulties with installing certain fonts, which are recognised by MS WOrd and other software, but not picked up by the Silhouette Studio software. The process the poster described was basically the one I used: Type up the lettering you want in MS Word, scan it in, and manipulate it until you have your codes in your studio 3 file.
What a bother! But there is no way round it. However, the thread reminded me that I had created this file, but not uploaded it here. SO better late than never, here it is.
It contains all the letters and numerals in two of the most common font styles used by RAF aircraft. You can use them for squadron codes, serial numbers, or whatever you choose. Just copy and past the characters you require into your own Studio 3 file, size them and arrange them to suit your subject, and off you go. Applicable to all scales - although the smallest I've managed to cut are the 4" characters that the RN use for serials in 1/32 scale.
Hope this is useful.
By GeneKThis file is a rescanned and simplified version of "Miss Virginia" lettering. Additionally, this file includes both the left and right fuselage side lettering since they differed in style.
As an aside: I scanned the Tamiya decal sheet, traced using Silhouette Studio, simplified the trace nodes, and converted the resulting studio file file to svg using
http://www.ideas-r-us-software.uk/FileConverters/SilhouetteStudioConverter.aspx .The latest version of Silhouette Studio has a much improved trace function.
And yes, the lettering is likely too small to reliably cut masks using the current Silhouette machines ... BUT, the forthcoming new machines (Portrait 3, Curio 2, and Cameo 5 )will have an optional Static Electricity Technology mat that MAY work with small lettering/numbers. BUT the additional $100 COST MAY BE A DEAL BREAKER to many.
By MikeCType C1 Roundels and walkways sized for 1/32 HKM Meteor. Sized for an A5 sheet of masking material.
Please Note: As at 9th August 2021 I offer no guarantee or warranty that this is the correct size simply because I have been unable to cut it yet due to problems with my Portrait 3: as soon as I'm able to I will try it myself and update the file if and as necessary.
