There is not a published font as such. It is a modified font that MC has registered as their trademak logo. You can scan a decal or the lettering and program it that way.

HemiHead 426 is close, but not exact.

Thanks Bigmac for the comparison! I was about to comment that is was close enough for someone who didn't care how far off it is. You made it simple to see it's way off!

The "MasterCraft" font is actually a Jpeg....there is no "font".

Right. Actually, it's a logo and a registered trademark. My guess would be that MasterCraft actually did commission a font because they'd want it to be scaleable as an EPS graphic so they could easily generate graphics of many different sizes. But if so, I'm sure it's a copyrighted font and held very closely.

It would be pretty easy to generate that MasterCraft font using Adobe Illustrator or some other similar vector-based graphics program. One could use Hemi Head as a starting point and change the line weights, the kerning, and redo the ascenders. I'm kind of surprised no one has done that and made it available on the internet.

I really liked it when they had the line going thru it. Anybody got that one?
