People, anyone recognise the font used at the Gdansk shipyard in Poland?
Is there a similar font anyone can think of?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

It's got an odd mix with the round G (like Eagle), and the oval O. Obviously not the work of a type designer. Overall, I might suggest a heavy weight of Avant Garde Gothic, with a customized G and O.

Cheers Mike,

Yep - I was having problems trying to find something suitably shoddy! I want to try and recreate that industrial homemade feel so mixing and matching will probably do the trick.
