    Good afternoon, designers! Please, I need some advice, tips, opinions, etc about this situation: supose I intend to choose an aircraft (an airliner), desing a complex cardmodel of it and sell this product on the internet. Which actions should I take firstly, regarding to the plane manufacturer and the airline in which livery the model would be released, in order not to violate copyright issues? Thank you and sorry for my poor English...

    As far as I understand, you can make a model of anything you choose and sell it, the makers of the original have no say in the matter. Use of registered trademarks, or colour schemes is another thing altogether, you had best ask permission of the companies involved.
