My morning trek through Homebuilt Camping finds this recent arrival.  It has an interesting paint job to say the least.  I never was able to contact the owner to find the story behind the paint job.  Maybe next year.  Oh yeah, this is a Bellanca 14-19-2 "Cruisemaster" built in 1958.  The aircraft has wooden wings with a "tube and rag" fuselage and tail.  The engine is a 230 hp Continental O-470.  The Cruisemaster was the last of the Bellanca "triple tail" aircraft and was the last Bellanca taildragger as well.
