May 25th - completed the detail set for the 1/32 Panoz, and started converting the Buddy Rice car to Kenny Brack's Indy ride.

First post

Hello all,
I'm starting this blog in order to keep our customers and fans abreast of the goings-on at the Daisey Designs World Headquarters on the 51st floor of the Daisey Building in beautiful downtown Marshall, WI. Mainly, I want to keep everyone updated on the status of my model design projects, since I'm not particularly orderly about finishing things. I like to have several projects going at once, and a few more in reserve.

List 1: Designs that have a significant portion completed
1. 1966/67 Yenko Stinger (1/32 and 1/18) - 1/32 is about 80% there, 1/18 has wheels and a preliminary chassis. Body is waiting for the 1/32 version to be done, since it mostly just needs to be scaled up.
2. 1937 Flying Aces "Moth" (1/4 and 1/3) - a model of a model. About 75% done.
3. 1935 Wittman "Chief Oshkosh" (1/24) - was completed through a color test model, but I have to go back and redesign the wings and most of the fuselage.
4. 2005 Kenny Brack #15 Panoz-Honda Indy car (1/32) - just a modification of the Buddy Rice 2004 model from the 2005 Indy 500 program.
5. 2005 Danica Patrick #16 Panoz-Honda Indy car - same as above.
6. 2005 Felipe Giaffone #48 Panoz-Toyota Indy car - recolor of above.
7. 2004 Larry Foyt #41 Panoz-Toyota Indy car - same as above.
8. 2005 Buddy Lazier #95 Dallara-Chevy Indy car (1/18) - 3D design done, about 50% new design compared to my 2003 models.

List 2: Designs with CAD drawings started, but little to no model design yet
1. Kurtis 500C/D Indy roadster
2. Heath Parasol lightplane
3. Heath-Henderson lightplane engine - for Parasol and Church Midwing

List 3: Potential future projects
1. 1931 Church Midwing lightplane
2. 1920's Miller 91/122 rear-drive
3. 1960's Watson Indy roadster
4. 1911 Marmon Wasp
5. 1942 Bell XP-77 fighter
6. 1938 Crosby CR-4 racer
