Howdy Jekran,
I think they look very nice, but........I should have a set to put on my truck to check the lighting and size. I'm just trying to be helpful.

Here are some photos of the "BULL", which is actually an OX .

You'll notice some variations in these images:

The RING in the nose is thicker in one version.

The bottom of the nose is a straight line in one version, one is curved.

Yours looks quite good. I notice that your horns curve up on the bottom edge as they join the head, more than these examples, but that is a trifle.

Very Nice, Jekran.

There are a couple of very small details, but I don't want to nit-pick your
fine work.

This just happen to part of what I do for my job....if you want my input, I'd be happy to give it. My stuff is nit-picked all of the time, so I am used to looking at the little details before they do....

OK Jekran,

Well, first of all, I don't think there is a 100% correct version of the ox head in a circle, since that was never the original design. So, you have some creative room there.

As far as your logo as it stands, I would personally look at these details:

1. The rectangular cut-out between the horns should have curved corners
instead of square. This part forms the "U" of UNIMOG. and the originals had
a radius to the inside corners.

2. The nose should also have rounded corners on the outside . You have added the reverse curve to the bottom of the nose, but the outside edges are still squared off. Compare to the RED OX head.

3. Although it is hard to tell without doing an overlay, your head looks to be a tiny bit too narrow, across the "face" of the OX, below the horns. If so, it is very minor. Also, there are variations in what has been shown in Germany, so....

4. The corners at the bottom of the horns, where they meet the head, I would consider adding a small radius there, as see in the RED logo.

5. I would consider making the 3 points where the OX HEAD connects to the circle a little larger. This is just a personal choice, but I think that it might
look a little better if they were beefed up a little, like the large hanging sign.
I'd change the file and look at it before I made a decision; it may be best the way you have it.

Good work. If you don't change anything, you are looking good.
