FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FLEET OF TOP PATRONS FAQ
WHO IS INCLUDED?
Members on the MOST TIER or above will appear while they are current with PATREON. Only members for 2 months or more will appear.
HOW DO I FIND MY LINK?
For privacy, only the last 5 characters of your username are shown, the first characters are obscured. The links are in order of sign up date.
I DON'T SEE MY USERNAME?
Only members for 2 months or more will have images created and updates will be periodic. Otherwise check WHO IS INCLUDED?
I DON'T WANT MY NAME LISTED?
The airplanes are created automatically. Please change your name to a username to protect your identity in the Patreon settings under DISPLAY NAME.
HOW IS THIS DONE?
A 3D model of the airplane is painstakingly set in a scene and then edited in Photoshop. The usernames are applied in a batch queue from the Patreon user list.
CAN YOU DO OTHER AIRPLANES?
I intend to slowly increase each top Patron's fleet. Which Patron level this feature is available to may change in the future. Also, I do not create the 3D models and they can be quite expensive, and they are not available for every aircraft type or airline. Additionally, the quality of the paint schemes varies considerably. If you are BUSINESS patron AND you provide an approved 3D model I would consider creating it given available time.
Personal use is certainly fine. Usage of airline paint schemes can be restricted by the rights holder for that airline's branding if they choose to. Downloading of an image from this site does not imply unlimited usage rights.
IT DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT?
Long usernames will create problems, as will special characters. In most cases the best solution is to change your Username in the Patreon settings to a DISPLAY NAME that you think would come out better.
IT ISN'T HISTORICALLY ACCURATE?
If it has your name on it, it probably isn't historically accurate as a starting point! Some airlines had named planes and some didn't. A lot of airlines have a handful of names planes that go largely unnoticed like the United 727-200 with Leon D Cuddeback on the nose. Regardless, we get as close as we can with the tools available and still have some fun.
