I know this is an old model, BUT, has anyone out there got a spare fuselage or instruction book/plan? I have recently moved to Portugal and two of my models have suffered damage in transit via couriers. They did the packing. The other model is a John Wilson Maestro which i can repair, but the Puma is terminal.

If you aren't lucky in your appeal, perhaps you could "reverse engineer" the model - temporarily stick broken bits back together and take measurements, pick bits apart to re-draw formers (remember you only need one half to be good as they are normally symmetrical) etc. - and don't underestimate the repairability of balsa using thin cyano to wick into cracks by capillary action...

P.S. This might help!

(or this if it's the high wing version)

The Robbe Puma I recall from the early 1990's had foam wings and a Plura plastic fuselage, presumably why Stephen is asking about a replacement?

Stephen, the best I can suggest is to keep watching some mainland european ebay sites to see if an un-built kit shows up for sale.

This model was a bit exclusive 20 years ago Stephen yes?

more top of the range

It was not common, and was breaking new ground with construction.

Am just jealous, but my point is there may not be many laying around.

keep up the searches as items do turn up.

A very aerobatic model with increased throws and a high speed approach for landing. One was used in a tv series around the time, with Warren Clark and i think it was called the Good Guys.

Hello, I know its 3 years asking the line when you posted looking for info for your Puma. I have just kind the forum and saw your request, I have a Puma 40 in perfect condition bought 2nd hand but like new at a auction in Glasgow 23yrs ago! I have never flown it as we moved house and work stopped my hobby. Would you be interested in purchasing it from me? Photos can be supplied along with build instructing but alas no plan.

Hope to hear from you

Hi Dave - if the original poster never replied, I’d be interested ( I’m assuming it’s not built so could be posted )

I had one, was very heavy and flew like a brick - just. Sold it.

Hi Dave, thanks for the offer but postage to Portugal would be astronomical. Steve.
