Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Here we go. This is a preview of the first finished tile I'll be using to build the signs with
in order to create my textures. The font was derived from a cylinder of .063 radius
(appr. 1/16th inch) then scaled on y to give a .032 depth (appr. 1/32). The outer black
layer is .032 thick for a total intrusion of .064 into the sign base. The base thickness
will be 1/8". And the tiles are designed to give 1/8" seperation between characters with a
margin of .25" above and beneath. Average outer margins from the top and bottom edges
of the characters is 3/4" with 1/2" inch average spacing between lines. So, it's pretty simple
to reconstruct these. Character height is 1" on small standard signs.

..And this was requested at the main thread on 3dBuzz; so, throwin it in for the heck of it.
