Hi could someone take a look at the image and tell me what font is being used, or tell me a font that is very close.

Thanks very much.

Regards John

I tried Identifont and WhatTheFont... identifont couldn't find one, WhatTheFont's best suggestion was RexliaRegular http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/typodermic/rexlia/regular/

Thanks for your help mate, i will look into Rexlia, or maybe i will model it myself cant be hard but i need a template for a model.

Thanks for the heads up on Identifont and WhatThe Fonts didnt even know they existed.

Also try http://www.dafont.com/ nice easy to use visual interface.

I would be confident in saying that's not really a font, but you might be lucky and find someone who's made one like it :D

http://www.dafont.com/uss-dallas.font is very close as are http://www.dafont.com/bombardier.font and http://www.dafont.com/federation-starflee.font but narrower.

and if you're looking for Nasa-alike http://www.dafont.com/nasalization.font is pretty cool.

TBH that font is just a fairly regular grid, and you could probably mock it up in Modeler in a few minutes :D

Thanks Tobian i think the links you sent especially bombardier and federation starflee font are the ones. I have the nasalisation font already.

Thanks for the help, i realised strictly it was not a font but wondered if there was one around the same or similar and you seem to have hit the money.

Regards John

I just compared that font to an old font I kept from my Corel7 Draw CD's. It's is identical to AFSATMPExt.ttf

Corel products are all but useless to me but having an extra 350 TT fonts lying around is pretty handy. It's even worth picking up the Corel7 CD's in your local software bargain bin for $4 if you can still find them.

Oops .. sorry .. finger dyslexia strikes again.

In case you find a Corel CD - that was AFSTAMPExt.ttf, not AFSATMPExt.ttf. swapped the A and the T.
