ABOUT







Ronnie Olsthoorn

Ronnie Olsthoorn was born and raised in the Netherlands, where he studied aeronautical engineering. After graduating he chose to become a professional artist and soon moved to the UK. Currently a freelancer, Ronnie has created artwork for fifteen computer games and even more aviation books. Ronnie Olsthoorn runs Aviation Art (was: Skyraider's 3d aviation art).

He designed the free military aircraft font Blockschrift-für-Flugzeuge (2000). He writes: This true type font (TTF) is a pretty accurate representation of the codes used on German aircraft in World War II. It was made according to RLM prescribtions of late 1943. The code system used on Luftwaffe aircraft was as follows: Two characters, a Balkenkreuz (Cross) and two letters. The first two characters indicated the Geschwader (Squadron) and can be two letters or a letter-number mix. The third character (directly to the right of the cross) indicated the individual aircraft, while the last character indicated the Staffel/Gruppe (Wing) to which the aircraft belonged. For example 9K+EH was aircraft number E of the first Staffel (denoted by "H") of Kampfgeschwader 51 (denoted by "9K"). Dafont link.
