Hello 

I found Pics of the Truck and engine here: 

https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/32139-the-turbostar-from-international/

and the Turbostar script is done with this 4mm letters:

I love this, not only is it a great subject, a turbine 4070, but the build quality is outstanding. 4070 is my favorite truck ever and this one is amazing. I never knew that made a turbine 4070. Very cool and very well done.
