Analog gauges: THE Font!

#1 Post by JackZ » Mon Mar 13, 2017 12:33 pm

Hello to all.

I think I have found the Holy Grail of every gauge designer: The correct font used in most of the analog gauges!
MILSPEC 33558

and the good news is that it can be found here:

Was really sad about not finding the correct font, and spent hours trying to find it.
Was about to create it by myself, but at the end here it is!

I submitted to the store the new graphically improved version of the altimeter.

I also found it on a forums a while ago. It's nice to finally have the correct font.

Thanks Raplh.
Could you make this post sticky, this can be valuable?.
I put directly the font file here so it is no longer lost
