Default Aerobee Hi logo

Does anyone where I can get access to the Aerobee Hi logo? It seems like every place I see it, itís slightly different. I am a typographic designer so this is a particular detail that I pay attention to. I tried looking for it online but canít seem to find a really lead picture of it.

This one? I traced this in Illustrator from a scan twenty years ago. Still looking for the original artwork.

A few years back when I was working on the AeroTech Arreauxbee-Hi kit, I wanted to use the same font as Aerojet did with the Aerobee-Hi rocket.

I contacted a friend at Aerojet and asked him to find out what font was used back then.

His response was that there was no-one left at the company from that time frame and the best information he could find was that the logo was a creation of Aerojet's marketing/art department.

Fortunately, Gordy/Sandman was able to take the Aerobee-Hi logo and work with it to make the Arreauxbee-Hi wording (Thanks again, Gord! ).

I had read somewhere, but can't now find the reference, that it was stenciled on some rockets, but hand painted on other rounds.
