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
