Kern Me is a simple puzzle that might help modellers with one of the toughest challenges we face - correct letter and number spacing.
I have putting transfers on a freshly painted model. There's always a whole lot of poking and prodding to get the things centred and level. Then I move on to numbers and have all that fun again with the added joy of trying to get the spacing correct. I swear the things move too - more than one model has been decreed correct only for mt o spot an obvious error a few hours later.
Kern Me has the player dragging letters around to get the correct spacing. I'm not saying that it will train your eye perfectly but it's not bad. I scored 75 on the first go which is better than I might expect. With only 10 rounds, it doesn't eat up too much of your time either.
