    I have set myself the challenge to create a vehicle mod over the summer holidays. I wish to base the vehicle on a real life vehicle, but do not know what I have to change to make it free from copyright.
    Responses about stuff like logos, company names and body shapes would be greatly appreciated.

    Remove the copyright protected logos (or change them). Same with the names. For the body style, mix it up of it is licenced.

    Exactly this, but try to make your vehicle as original as possible.

    Yeah, I was originally going to make an ETK, as this is a German brand, but I think it would be good if I could come up with a new name. I might look at German cities/towns and names to come up with a good one. I'll make new logos and stuff, but I the reason I wanted to make this mod is so that it could have a very similar body style to the vehicle I am mimicking, so will not be changing that much.
