Tiger Moth Fonts

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have just built a very nice Bud Barclay (Clarke Ind.) Tiger Moth and have asked my vinyl cutter to make me some decals for this 1930 - 40's era RAF trainer. The one I am modeling is a Royal Navy 82A. He wants to know what the font is called. I haven't a clue so am asking if anyone knows. The numbers and letters look pretty simple to me with no flourishes etc. I don't know if the RAF used standard fonts, stencils or whatever. There must have been a standardized style for consistency I think. Any input on this is appreciated. Also, is there a standard for "RAF Trainer Yellow". Are there reference numbers or paint samples to be had. It seems that there may be several variants of the "yellow" that was used for trainer aircraft in the 1940's.
