Both Amarillo and USAF Stencil are good. Sometimes they need 'manipulating' but they're generally good for the job.

I use a multitude of different fonts as the design of the numbers and code letters can vary considerably.

 

There's sometimes a degree of "surgery" required to achieve the correct shape on some characters or to add the stencil gaps.

 

For the tail numbers on P-51's and P-47s I favour a font called "Octin Stencil". (Just substitute a capital letter "I" for the number 1)

 

The other fonts I use are:

Airborne Pilot (Very Useful)

Airborne Pilot II (Also very useful)

USAAF Code

USAAF Stencil

RCN_80_ATH

RAF_WW2_841_ATH

RAF_WW2_641_ATH

PW_ATH

RAF_45D_851_ATH

RAF_45D_841_ATH

BOU College

BOU College Stencil

Amarillo USAF (This one is actually more appropriate for modern USAF but still has its uses)

USN Stencil (Similar to Amarillo USAF in that its more relvant to modern military as some character shapes are incorrect for WW2)

 

Hope that's useful.

 

Bo.
