The brand is not allowed to be published on CGTrader, I also had my Mini pulled from this store.

By publishing branded products, you're at constant risk that brand owners may request to take down the content that violates their IP. Some brands are more unsafe than others. Below is a small list of brands that you should avoid. If one knows more "unsafe" brands, feel free to contribute to the list.

BMW
Ford
Ferrari
Volvo
Ikea
Red Bull
Fiskars
E-Volo

I think that also UPS belongs to the list.

For the next time I recommend to browse CGT (or/and other) market before making of some branded (not generic) model.

Formula One (F1) is also "unsafe" brand.

Has someone tried to contact one of these brands and ask for permission?
Maybe there can be a good response, you are not trying to steal anything, but offering more exposure to the model and the brand.
Moreover, a stylized design, let´s say a cartoon design is an artistic approach and they have nothing to lose.

Most of those companies has entire licensing departaments, which are busy with serious licensing deals. Most likely they won't even bother to respond to individuals who want to sell few models per year. Cgtrader as a company could approach brand owners and negotiate for good deals, but they probably would seek exclusive rights and that wouldn't be exciting news for most of us.

Most probably you are right, Lemonade, but I think it´s not that difficult to ask, maybe it´s your lucky day.
