About this Plan

Juno. CL stunt model.

Quote: -"This stunter utilizes self-jigging and super-light I-beam construction. Its heritage includes a long line of contest winners.

For anyone who has an interest in controline aerobatics the name Bill Werwage is probably a household term. Bill has been in stunt competition for over 25 years during which time he has won four National Championships, two World Championships, four berths on the United States World Team, two seconds in the Nationals, two seconds in World Championships and 150 first place finishes in 200 contests entered.

Perhaps the most experienced stunt flyer of all time, Bill has designed and built many fine stunters. Among these are the legendary Ares (oz4884) and the USA-1 (oz8823). Bill's last published work was in 1960 for the now defunct American Modeler magazine. We at Flying Models feel proud to present an article by this very knowledgeable modeler. The design presented here is the culmination of 25 years of intense development and is, according to Bill, his best airplane to date. Fellow modelers, a rare treat, Bill Werwage's 'Juno'

This design, while not having the ability to lift the hood off my car or tow well in water and in spite of the tapered trailing edge and design modifications more drastic than that of the width of a fat ball point pen, still makes me happier than the 50 or 55 airplanes that preceeded it, these, by the way, included a few noteworthy aircraft including the Ares and USA 1. Actually the ship is the culmination of many experiment and I hope you like it as much as I do. We'll start out with the basic airframe construction and then discuss the other three fourths of a stunt airplane - the motor..."

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
