Werewolf is a very nice sports aerobatic model that can be finished to look like a Luftwaffe war machine or whatever you like. Enjoy her, she has a terrific performance. The completed aeroplane should weigh in at around 4 – 41/2 lb, depending on the motor used, and if you ask me the C of G is better right at the front of the range.

Werewolf came about after an email correspondent suggested Peter Miller designed a 1.5 size version of Peter Russell’s 334G – a very nice little control line stunt model from the mid ‘50s, styled on the Focke Wulf 190. Although scaling other designs is not what Peter Miller does, he liked the FW 190 and used the concept to design my own version. Of course, a true-scale ‘190 would be lacking in wing area and the nose too short for the type of model that Peter Miller enjoys to fly, so Werewolf is the result.
There’s nothing complicated in the construction method, indeed it employs Peter Miller’s standard build techniques proven over many designs. Oh, and you’ll not have to go hunting for a canopy or Laser Cut parts as they’re available from us at Sarik Hobbies.
