07/29/2004. Remarks by Roland Joslyn: "It has been thirty years since I made new tail fins for Bellanca N6RJ, which I sold about twelve years ago. Most fins are warped. My solution was to make new honeycomb sandwich tail fins using 1/16 in (1.6 mm) aircraft plywood, 3/8 in (9.5 mm) marine grade plywood, 3/8 in (9.5 mm) phenolic honecomb of 3/16-1/4 in (4.8-6.4 mm) cell size (aluminum honeycomb works equally well) and then covered the fins with 2 oz (57 g) glass cloth and epoxy resin.
When I took out the 190 hp Lycoming and put in a 260 hp Continental IO-470-F engine, with a modified 14-19-3 engine mount and cowling, I called it a 14-19-2 1/2 -- halfway between the 14-19-2 and -3 model. It was Reserve Grand Champion at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA, in 1977, Classic Division, and 1978 Best Custom Classic over 150 hp."
Roland will be happy to discuss modifications further.
